Journal list menu
Fish and Fisheries is an interdisciplinary journal covering fish biology, fisheries and aquaculture. We are renowned for our high-profile studies, adopting a broad approach to the field.
We publish major synoptic papers, syntheses and meta-analyses from leading experts on current research and emerging trends, focusing on fish palaeontology, molecular biology and ecology, genetics, biochemistry, physiology, ecology, behavior, evolutionary studies, conservation, and the social, economic, and policy aspects of fisheries.
We invite proposals for Guest Edited Special Issues in Fish and Fisheries! Please refer to the proposal guidelines here for more information.
Introducing Our New Editors
We are delighted to introduce Professor Anna Kuparinen as our newest Editor of Fish and Fisheries. Anna joins our Fish and Fisheries Editor team that includes Bronwyn Gillanders (who joined the team in early 2022), Gary Carvalho and Robert Arlinghaus.

Trees for fishes: The neglected role for phylogenetic comparative methods in fisheries science
-  16 November 2023
Phylogenetic comparative methods (PCM) are widely used in ecology but rarely applied in fisheries science. PCM combines information about evolutionary relatedness and ecological trade-offs among traits, and could improve foundational information used by fisheries biologists (e.g., relationships among size, growth, and reproductive traits) and fisheries managers (biological reference point proxies). I introduce PCM using easy-to-use software, and illustrate improvements relative to conventional linear models when estimating natural mortality rates using size and growth information.
