Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
The journal Fishes is preparing a Special Issue entitled "Fish Pathogens: Infection and Biological Control". In recent decades, the field of fish farming has reported many emergent pathogens as new genotypic profiles or through emerging new pathogens, resulting in relevant losses of production. Therefore, the relation of the pathogen to its host (pathogenesis in one or more hosts to define host predilection), genetic/genomic characterization and, additionally, probiotics as an alternative control of the impact of disease should be further explored. This Special Issue aims to explore the boundaries of our scientific knowledge, focusing on increasing our knowledge about emergent fish pathogens and increasing applicable strategies related to the control (biocontrol and immune stimulation), prevention and immunoprophylaxis of fish emergent pathogens. We welcome the submission of original research articles and reviews on topics including (but not limited to) the following:
- Emergent fish pathogens: the characterization of production losses due to outbreaks, genetic/antigenic profiles of pathogen and/or tissue lesions, and host adaptability;
- Comparative genomics studies of emergent fish pathogens;
- Probiotics as a control of emergent fish pathogens.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Fishes is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
