Special Issue "Environmental Impacts of Land-Based Aquaculture"
A special issue of Fishes (ISSN 2410-3888).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 20 November 2021.
Global aquaculture is a rapidly growing agricultural sector contributing to global food production. Several aquatic species are farmed using a range of intensive or extensive production systems in inland and coastal aquatic ecosystems, supporting the need to feed the rising human population. However, the rising aquaculture sector is facing several environmental challenges, including competition with other agricultural sectors for water, land, and ecological resources.
A particularly promising method of production is land-based aquaculture. Land-based fish farms are contributing globally to the growth and value of the sector by cultivating several freshwater fish species, including Salmonidae cyprinidae and eel species. The value of inland aquaculture exceeds by far the production of marine floating cages and other offshore aquaculture production methods.
The aim of this Special Issue entitled “Environmental Impacts of Land-Based Aquaculture” is to provide a platform to present water quality and other environmental issues and prospects for sustainable inland water aquaculture development. Contributions which address water quality, fish welfare, environmental issues, and aquaculture engineering and recirculating aquaculture systems of land-based aquaculture are particularly welcomed.
