About FisheriesSciences

Impact Factor: 0.51

Journal of FisheriesSciences.com is an Open Access Journal that publishes peer-reviewed articles which cover all aspects of fisheries sciences, including fishing technology, fisheries management, sea foods, aquatic (both freshwater and marine) systems, aquaculture systems and health management, aquatic food resources from freshwater, brackish and marine environments and their boundaries, including the impact of human activities on these systems. As the specified areas inevitably impinge on and interrelate with each other, the approach of the journal is multidisciplinary, and authors are encouraged to emphasize the relevance of their own work to that of other disciplines. This journal published articles in English and Turkish. From January 2015 issue, only english articles will be accepted for the publication.

Fisheries management

Fisheries Management includes regulating,protecting and conservation of fisheries. Fisheries management draws on fisheries science in order to find ways to protect fishery resources so sustainable exploitation is possible. It can be defined as"The integrated process of information gathering, analysis, planning, consultation, decision-making, allocation of resources and formulation and implementation, with enforcement as necessary, of regulations or rules which govern fisheries activities in order to ensure the continued productivity of the resources and the accomplishment of other fisheries objectives"

Sea foods

Any sea life form that is treated as a food by humans is referred as Sea food.It is high protein food and low in calories and fat. Seafood is any form of sea life regarded as food by humans. Seafood prominently includes fish and shellfish. Shellfish include various species of molluscs, crustaceans, and echinoderms.

Aquatic (both freshwater and marine)systems

The distinctive eco system present under water is reffered as equatic system. An ecosystem is an entity formed by the interaction between living organisms and the physical environment. It is classified into two main categories: Terrestrial ecosystems and Aquatic ecosystems. Terrestrial ecosystems contain organisms that depend on physical environment on land masses of continents. Aquatic ecosystems are systems composed of living organisms and non-living elements interacting in a watery environment.

Aquatic health management

Aquatic health management is a global concept for protection,conservation and control of aquatic animal diseases.The main objective is the Adoption and promotion of ecosystem health concept and Enhancing the understanding of marine and freshwater, structure, function, ecology and food web dynamics.

Fishing technology

Technology involvied in improving efficiency of the fishing is termed as fishing technology. Fishing techniques are methods for catching fish. The term may also be applied to methods for catching other aquatic animals such as molluscs (shellfish, squid, octopus) and edible marine invertebrates. Fishing techniques include hand gathering, spearfishing, netting, angling and trapping.

louisiana wildlife and fisheries

The Department of Wildlife and Fisheries is accused of the obligation of overseeing and securing Louisiana's plenteous normal assets.Their mission is to  manage living aquatic resources and their habitat; to support the fishing industry; and to provide access, opportunity and understanding of Louisiana’s aquatic resources to the State’s citizens and other beneficiaries.

Fresh water fisheries

Freshwater fish spend some or the majority of their lives in new water, for example, waterways and lakes, with a saltiness of under 0.05%. Fresh water fisheries provides the public with information on issues related to freshwater fisheries management, including current fishing regulations, reports and publications, and fishing guides for popular freshwater fishing locations.

Brackish water fisheries

Fisheries in more salinity waters than fresh water are reffered as Brackish water fisheries.Soil and water quality for brackishwater aquaculture is almost similar to freshwater aquaculture except water salinity. Salinity represents the quantity of dissolved salt in a given unit of water, and is usually expressed in g/kg of water (ppt). In brackishwater ponds salinity usually ranges between 0.5%0and 30%0depending on the distance from sea and seasonal variation due to monsoon precipitation.

Fisheries feed

Commercial aquatic culture needs manufactured ,specially formulated and nutrient feed to keep them health and productive. While all animals needs to eat and all farmed animals need to be fed, aquaculture represents the most efficient method by which to convert feed to edible protein. Research through the NOAA-USDA Alternative Feeds Initiative has accelerated progress toward reducing fishmeal and fish oil use in aquaculture feeds while maintaining the important human health benefits of seafood consumption.The remarkable progress in developing alternatives has reduced reliance on wild fish caught for this purpose.

Fisheries diseases

Fisheries diseases should be taken into consideration as some diseases can be transmitted to humans while consumption and some can be quickly fatal. It disturbs aquatic health. Mycobacteriosis and nocardiosis,Anisakis nematodes, Crayfish handler’s disease (‘seal finger’)are the common types of Fish diseases.

Fisheries medicines

Fish medicine finds its application in Fisheries Management. It is the study of idetifying and treating the fish diseases.Medications for use with freshwater or saltwater aquariums. Illnesses due to disease-causing organisms fall under three general categories: Bacterial infections, fungal infections, and external or internal parasites. Keep on hand a general-purpose remedy for each of these disease categories to help save valuable time in combating aquarium fish illness.

Fish vaccines

Fish vaccines Vaccination sheilds fish from diseases like all domestic animals. Helps in improving aquatic health. Fish vaccines can be delivered the same way we immunize warm-blooded animals. Fish can be immunized by immersion in vaccine for a short period of time--30 seconds to 2 minutes. They can be immunized by injection, intramuscularly or intraperitoneally, and orally by mixing vaccines with feed either by top dressing or by incorporating into feed as an ingredient.

Sea food processing

The processing of sea lives which were treated as a food by humans is termed as sea food processing. Seafood Processing Global serves the European and international market for seafood processing equipment, services, packaging and logistics. Seafood Processing Global is co-located with Seafood Expo Global.

Fisheries and pollution

Fisheries and pollution got attention because to avoid any demonstrated effects on human beings pollution management activities, based on continuous efforts in stock assessment, environmental assessment, and experimental studies, can help to insure that rational decisions will be made about uses and abuses of coastal/estuarine waters.

Fish pathology

Fish pathology deals with the diseases and parasites that effects fish ordinary living. It studies fish defensive mechanism against diseases and its treatment.Areas of interest of pathology is regularly covered  include host-pathogen relationships, studies of fish pathogens, pathophysiology, diagnostic methods, therapy, epidemiology, descriptions of new diseases.

Fish genetics and genome

The analytical genetic technologies applicable to aquaculture include: DNA markers, genome mapping, microarrays, and sequencing will come under Fish genetics and fish genome.Humans and fishes share many developmental pathways, organ systems, and physiological mechanisms, making conclusions relevant to human biology. The respective advantages of zebrafish, medaka, Tetraodon, or Takifugu have been well exploited so far with bioinformatics analyses and molecular biology techniques.

Fish gear

Fishing gear is the equipment we use for catching the fish. Examples include fishing tackle,nets etc.Fishing tackle is the equipment used by fishermen when fishing. Almost any equipment or gear used for fishing can be called fishing tackle. Some examples are hooks, lines, sinkers, floats, rods, reels, baits, lures, spears, nets, gaffs, traps, waders and tackle boxes.
