Aquatic Living Resources, Conservation and Oceanography in an Era of Change: Insights from the 4th International Congress on Applied Ichthyology, Oceanography & Aquatic Environment

Dear Colleagues,

To date, “HydroMediT” is being established as one of the major International congresses on novel scientific and technological trends and aspects on aquatic living resources in our region, covering the Mediterranean and its adjacent seas. The topic of the meeting, “Aquatic Living Resources, Conservation and Oceanography in an Era of Change”, highlights the importance of novel methods in the conservation and sustainable management of the biodiversity in the marine realm. Policy makers, industry players, scientists, and conservationists shall work together making a positive contribution to the sustainability of aquatic living resources in a changing world.

This Special Issue, “HydroMediT 2021: Applied Ichthyology, Oceanography and Aquatic Environment”, will focus on research and innovation technology applied mainly in the Mediterranean and its adjacent waters, but interesting topics from other parts of the world will also be accepted. General fields of interest will be the following:

  • Oceanography
  • Marine Diversity and Conservation
  • Inland Aquatic Ecology and Resources
  • Processing of Aquatic Products
  • Environmental Management
