Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Over the past few decades, the global aquaculture industry has achieved remarkable growth through diversification is species and culture systems. However, with the fast growth in aquaculture industry, the incidence of aquatic diseases are gradually increasing due to existing and emerging pathogens. Additionally, the change in global climate has increased the frequency of diseases due to variation in temperature. The transboundary movement of migratory fishes and other aquatic animals, the movement of live fishes for international trade has introduced the risk of transboundary diseases. Hence, efforts are needed to minimize the damage to aquaculture industry due to diseases. This special issue aims to cover a broad spectrum of research on aquaculture vaccine development for disease prevention and control. We invite you to submit research papers on the recent advances in disease control, disease prevention, therapy, immunostimulants, and vaccinology, as well as groundbreaking concepts in host-pathogen interaction, immune defense mechanism, and disease mechanism relevant to the protection of fish against diseases. We look forward to publishing your latest research with new exciting findings on aquaculture vaccine development and disease prevention and control.
