Special Issue Information
Aquaculture production is increasing worldwide, leading to greater demand for highly nutritional feed. The increase in feed production has resulted in a greater need for agricultural feedstuffs, which are also used by other animal production sectors. Fisheries are a source of aquaculture feedstuff since they provide fish meal and fish oil. Competition among production chains for these goods, as well as environmental pressures causing increased prices, has stimulated the search for new feedstuff for the manufacture of aquaculture diets that will improve the sustainability and profitability of this activity. This Special Issue welcomes research articles that evaluate the use of new ingredients for the manufacture of feed and their impacts on the zootechnical performance, physiology, biochemistry, and morphology of aquatic organisms in captivity. Studies in multidisciplinary fields, such as physiology, nutrition, genetics, immunology and diseases, antioxidant and oxidative stress responses, husbandry and management, and economics, are welcome.
