Aims and Scope

Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences (Fish Aquat Sci) is an open-access peer-reviewed journal dedicated to research, reviews in all field of fisheries and aquatic sciences. Topics of interest include but are not limited to; aquaculture, aquatic life, aquatic environment, fisheries, seafood sciences and marine biotechnology. Taxonomic contributions are welcome, however authors are encouraged to ensure they contain clear accounts of the ecological relevance and implications of the new description. Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences has been the official journal of the Korean Society of Fisheries and Aquatic Science since 1998, and welcomes international submissions. This journal was supported by the Korean Federation of Science and Technology Societies Grant funded by the Korean Government.

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:
