Special Issue "Mycotoxins in Feeds and Their Effects on Fish"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 September 2021.
Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
The inclusion of mycotoxin-contaminated feed ingredients in, or periods of unfavorable storing conditions for, fish feeds can result in the occurrence of relevant mycotoxin levels in aquaculture feeds. The feeding of fish with mycotoxin-contaminated feeds often has detrimental effects on them. A better description of the effects that can be expected from the exposure of different fish species to single mycotoxins or mycotoxin mixtures will help us to better understand the impact that these compounds have on aquaculture. In addition, more detailed insights into the cellular or molecular targets of different mycotoxins in fishes may lead to improved strategies to mitigate the detrimental effects of mycotoxins in fish feed in the future. Therefore, we invite you to make a contribution to this Special Issue, in the form of an original research paper, a case study, or a review paper, that sheds light on the occurrence of mycotoxins in feed and their implications for health impairment in fish.
