Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The fish industry generates a massive amount of fishery processing byproducts (FPBPs) with accessible fish waste reported to be 27.85 million tons per year at a global scale. Untreated FPBPs may lead to environmental issues that result in reducing life quality and health if they are not utilized effectively. Some major FPBPs such as crab shells, shrimp shells, squid pens, fish skins, fish viscera, and fish heads contain various valuable bioactive components and are also rich in proteins, carbohydrates, lipids, and minerals. Therefore, FPBPs may be used for a wide spectrum of purposes, such as food additives, animal and fish feeds, nutraceuticals, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, biofertilizers, nutrient components for microbial fermentation, biofuels, biomaterials, etc.

This special issue aims to collect and announce all the worldwide investigations related to the reuse of FPBPs. We strongly recommend studies using FPBPs for the extraction of bioactive compounds or as carbon/nitrogen sources for the microbial fermentation process to produce bioactive molecules. Research papers, communications, and review papers are also welcome.

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 papers will be 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 quarterly 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 1400 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.
