Our Special Issue “Integration of Nutrition and Physiology in Aquatic Animals” welcomes the submission of reviews or manuscripts describing original research aimed at improving aquatic animal performance under dietary intervention and environmentally associated nutrients. The goal of this Special Issue is to collect contributions of high scientific quality that focus on the integration of nutrition and physiology and its subsequent impacts on aquatic animal metabolism, overall growth performance, or ecological performance. Our major focus is the latest advances in the field of nutritional physiology at the molecular, cellular, tissue, and organismal levels. Investigations into interactions between nutrition and ecological adaptations are also of interest.

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.
