Call for Special Issue: "Novel Approaches on Feed Ingredients and Additives In Aquaculture"

Aquaculture is a young industry that has experienced unstoppable, exponential, and irreversible expansion in recent years. This great expansion necessitates the development of alternative feed additives in order to ensure the long-term usage of some raw resources that can be exclusively used in feed manufacturing, such as fish oil and meal. A wide range of feed additives can be utilized to meet the fundamental nutritional needs of farmed aquatic organisms as well as to improve their health and stress resistance. The nature and properties of these feed additives are highly different, and their incorporation into diet formulas serves a specific purpose. Some additives, like as acidifiers and exogenous enzymes, have been used to improve performances by increasing feed digestibility or counteracting the detrimental effects of plant anti-nutrients (anti-nutritional factors). Other additives, such as probiotics, prebiotics, synbiotics, phytogenics, and immune stimulants, aim to promote gut health, immunity, stress tolerance, and disease resistance.

The goal of this Special Issue is to throw lights on the most recent advances in finfish and shrimp nutrition using novel feed ingredients and additives.

There are a diverse subject areas to consider this goal include:
1.    Noval ingredients, including alternative ingredients, complementary ingredients, and ingredient blends
2.    New feed technology
3.    Feed ingredients
4.    Organic feeds
