Mediterranean Fisheries and Aquaculture Research (MedFAR) is an international peer-review open access journal aiming to establish a platform for dissemination of high quality original research papers, short communications, technical notes, comments and in-depth reviews related to all aspects of aquatic sciences, capture fisheries and aquaculture including interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary studies. The main focus of the journal is  Mediterranean and Black Sea region. However; this does not mean any geographic restriction, and manuscripts from other regions are also welcomed. Mediterranean Fisheries and Aquaculture Research intends to contribute to development of environmentally (both marine and freshwater), economically and socially sustainable  capture fisheries and aquaculture in the region by bridging science and the industry. The journal welcomes case studies providing viable solutions to administrative and operational problems. Applied research and innovative solutions and product development are much appreciated. Similarly, conceptual frameworks and meta-analysis critical reviews from the early stages PhD researchers are strongly supported through this publication.


Along with prevailing issues related to aquatic sciences, fisheries and aquaculture, Mediterranean Fisheries and Aquaculture Research welcomes manuscripts in following domains;   

  • Environment and fisheries and/or aquaculture interactions, ecological footprints of fisheries and aquaculture operations,
  • LCA (Life Cycle Assessments)
  • Risk analysis (environmental, economic, social) in Fisheries & Aquaculture
