The New Zealand Journal of Marine and Freshwater Research is calling for papers to be included in a special issue; publication date September 2014. The subject is ‘New Zealand Aquaculture Research’ and it will be guest edited by Andrea C. Alfaro (Auckland University of Technology), Nick King (Cawthron Institute) and Andrew Jeffs (University of Auckland).
This themed issue will address topics relevant to New Zealand aquaculture, including selective breeding, broodstock conditioning and reproduction, larval development, stock growth, nutrition and health, and product quality.
We are calling for submissions by 2 December 2013 through the journal’s manuscript management site. Earlier submission of manuscripts is encouraged. Manuscript length should ideally be in the range of 5,000-10,000 words. Note that submission does not guarantee acceptance for publication, which will depend on the outcome of normal peer review processes and authors meeting critical time schedules.
Please direct any queries to Jill Mellanby (firstname.lastname@example.org) at the editorial office of Royal Society of New Zealand Publishing or to Andrea C. Alfaro, associate editor of NZJMFR (email@example.com).

Aims: The diversity of aquatic life in the southern continents and oceans is of worldwide interest to researchers and resource managers in research institutions, museums, and other centres. The New Zealand Journal of Marine and Freshwater Research plays an important role in disseminating information on field-based, experimental, and theoretical research on the marine, estuarine, and freshwater biology of the region.
Scope of submissions: The New Zealand Journal of Marine and Freshwater Research publishes original research papers, review papers, short communications, book reviews, letters, and forum articles. We welcome submissions on all aspects on all aspects of aquatic science (including fisheries), with particular emphasis on Australasia, South America, Antarctica, and the Pacific. The journal’s subject matter includes ecology, aquaculture, genetics, biodiversity, bioinvasions; physical oceanography, limnology, hydrology, and aquatic chemistry.
