Physical, environmental, and physiological disturbances induce stress in many aquaculture species. Stress has a negative economic impact on the aquatic animal health, productivity, and final product quality. Furthermore, stress threats the homeostasis and results in neuroendocrine, physiological, molecular, and behavioral changes in the aquatic animals.
This Research Topic focuses on the study of physiological and molecular stress responses, and the potential mechanisms that are involved in these responses. Understanding and discussing the current knowledge on these responses and the associated mechanisms will provide new insights into aquatic animal health. This Research Topic also aims to include a range of original research and review articles regarding using probiotics and commensal microbiota to enhance the aquatic animal health through modulation of the various stress and immune responses to increase the resistance against infectious​ and non-infectious diseases.


Keywords: Aquaculture, Fish, Shellfish, Invertebrate, Functional Genomics, Stress Responses, Probiotics, Microbiota, Immune system
