Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Aquaculture biotechnology applications play important roles in promoting quality, productivity, efficiency, and ensuring sustainability. Key aspects of the aquaculture cycle, including the growth, nutrition, health, and reproduction of aquatic animals, could be optimized using biotechnological applications. This Special Issue will cover topics from the enhancement of growth rate to feed conversion efficiency, nutrition and product quality, stress modulation, vaccination, disease resistance, modern disease diagnostics and treatment, genetic selection, environmental management, aquaculture artificial intelligence, and transgenesis. The purpose of this Special Issue is to enhance the knowledge of aquaculture biotechnology and to indicate strategies that could improve it.

Original research articles and reviews dedicated to the topic will be welcome.

Prof. Dr. Mingwei Lu
Dr. Shih-Chao Lin
