Aquaculture Asia Magazine is an autonomous publication that gives farmers and scientists in developing countries a voice. Stories largely cover the small-scale aquaculture prevalent in the region and the circumstances of small-scale farmers trying to make ends meet in an increasingly globalised world.
Our readers come from more than 25 countries in Asia. We accept articles on any aspect of aquaculture and the related processing, marketing, economic, environmental and social issues that surround the industry.
