Aims and Scope

Fisheries and Aquatic Science (FAS) is an international, open access peer-reviewed journal with a main focus on fisheries and aquatic sciences. FAS will provide a chance for scientists to publish original ideas and their latest achievements regarding their area of research. Research articles, reviews, book reviews, short communications, short notes, comments, opinion papers and case reports are all welcome in our journal.

FAS is a multidisciplinary open access journal focusing on reports of original research and critical reviews and synthesis from the broad area of fisheries and aquatic sciences. The ultimate objective of FAS is to facilitate the discovery of connections between research areas, advancing science and filling knowledge gaps, and providing solutions for all present and future issues encountered in the sector of fisheries, aquaculture and seafood sciences. FAS is a central resource and essential reference point for all of those interested in aquaculture, aquatic life, aquatic environment, fisheries, fisheries economy, seafood sciences, marine biotechnology, freshwater and marine animals. FAS focuses on a variety of areas, including, amongst others, the following areas:
