About this Research Topic
COVID-19 jeopardizes global food security and scientists believe that seafood from capture fisheries and aquaculture will be the food source of the future. However, aquaculture has also been facing numerous challenges to meet the food demand. For a long time, the focus of traditional fish nutrition studies has been mainly on nutrients requirement and fish metabolism but during recent decades, the interaction of nutrients and physiological responses has drawn much attention. Omics technologies have made a large contribution to a better understanding of fish response to nutrients and dietary manipulations.
This Research Topic aims to collect studies (original research, perspectives, reviews and mini-reviews) that focus on the application of “omics” approaches such as comparative and functional genomics, metagenomics, transcriptomics and proteomics in fish nutrition.
Keywords: Fish nutrition, physiology, transcriptomics, proteomics, genomics
