Scope and Objectives

Marine & Fishery Sciences (MAFIS) is an Open Access journal edited by the Instituto Nacional de Investigación y Desarrollo Pesquero (INIDEP) that publishes double blind peer-reviewed articles of original investigations not published elsewhere except as a brief abstract in a scientific meeting or symposium. It is published two times a year (June and December) aiming all work and studies on applied or scientific research within the many varied areas of the marine sciences and fisheries, aquaculture, oceanography and marine technologies including conservation, environmental impact and social-related aspects that directly or indirectly affect to human populations. Young scientists are particularly encouraged to submit short communications based on their own research. The quality of the journal is guaranteed by the editorial and advisory boards, consisting of leading researchers in the field of marine sciences.
