NZJMFR call for papers: special issue on Effects of Climate Change on Aquaculture and Fisheries: Current and Future Impacts, Mitigation and Adaptation
This special issue of the New Zealand Journal of Marine and Freshwater Research invites submissions with a focus on the current and future risks of climate change to aquaculture and fisheries, and the potential for adaptation in a high CO2 world.
Climate change is one of the most important environmental pressures that we are facing as a society, significantly impacting the environment, primary industries and global economy. Aquaculture and fisheries sectors are already being negatively impacted by climate change, with mass mortality events and species shifts occurring globally.
This special issue of the New Zealand Journal of Marine and Freshwater Research (NZJMFR) is inviting expressions of interest and calling for papers that focus on the current and future risks of climate change to aquaculture and fisheries, and the potential for adaptation in a high CO2 world. We are looking for research articles, reviews and perspective pieces that will help guide new research and policies with the aim to future-proof and build resilience for the aquaculture and fisheries sectors.
We invite submissions on a broad range of topics, including but not limited to, the direct effects of climate change drivers (e.g. ocean warming, acidification, freshwater inputs) on commercial species, oceanographic changes and marine heatwave modelling, current and emerging diseases, harmful algal blooms, social and economic impacts of climate change, mātauranga Māori and risk analysis.
We encourage submissions from multiple perspectives (e.g., researchers, community, industry, policymakers), and are seeking a mix of research articles, review articles and short perspective articles (<2,000 words).
Authors affiliated with any of the 42 universities in Australia and New Zealand may be eligible to publish their articles Open Access at no cost in the New Zealand Journal of Marine and Freshwater Research. Find out if you’re eligible. There are no page charges or publication fees for publishing under the traditional subscription-based model.
Please submit a preliminary title, a list of authors, and a concise descriptive paragraph/abstract that outlines the scope of your proposed manuscript to Dr Natali Delorme at email@example.com, the Managing Editor, by 29 February 2024.
The editorial team will decide on which manuscripts to invite for the Special Issue, with authors being notified of the decision on a rotating basis and no later than 29 March 2024.
The anticipated manuscript submission deadline is 30 June 2024 with the aim of formally publishing the Special Issue in early 2025. Individual articles will be published online first with a DOI before they appear in the special issue.
Note that an invitation to submit does not guarantee acceptance for publication; this will depend on the outcome of the peer review process and authors meeting critical time deadlines. See Instructions for Authors on the journal homepage before making a formal submission to the New Zealand Journal of Marine and Freshwater Research if your EOI is selected.
