• About Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences
    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.
