Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The appropriate choice and intake of food and nutrients have a great beneficial impact on the health, growth, reproduction, and lifespan of fish. Different species of fish have different feeding habits, and also require precision nutritional levels in the different physiological phases. Feeding is a complex behavior regulated by neural and nutritional signals. This Special Issue is to provide an updated vision on the new feed additives and precision feed formula, the new regulatory mechanism of food intake, metabolism and physiology in fish. We welcome the submission of original research, reviews, mini-reviews, and perspective articles on topics including but not limited to the following:

  • New feed additives which could play roles in feeding and nutrition;
  • Precision nutritional requirements, fish physiology and formula of fish;
  • New signaling pathways or new regulatory patterns of food intake and metabolism, such as transcriptional regulation and epigenetic modification.
