Aquaculture production is expected to overtake wild fisheries as the major source of fish protein for humans in the course of this century. This enormous expansion of aquaculture will multiply its interactions with the environment. The journal Aquaculture Environment Interactions (AEI; www.int-res.com/journals/aei/) will provide an international and interdisciplinary forum for primary research on the ecology of aquaculture. AEI will publish scientific results obtained in this increasingly vital field, foster the sharing of information among scientists, the aquaculture industry and environmental managers, and contribute to improving the long-term sustainability of aquaculture activities. Concept and scope of AEI were defined by an independent group of interested researchers: Tim Dempster, Marianne Holmer, Ioannis Karakassis, Ian Fleming, Pablo Sánchez-Jérez, Bengt Finstad and Kenneth Black, in collaboration with Inter-Research (IR). AEI will publish Research Articles, Notes, Reviews, As I See It articles (opinion pieces), and Comments and Reply Comments (critiques of articles published in the journal), Theme Sections (collections of articles that provide a synthesis of research on key areas; proposals for a Theme Section should be submitted to the Editors-in-Chief). Peer review for manuscripts submitted to AEI is managed using an online system, and 3 to 4 reviews will be solicited for each manuscript. We strive to limit the duration of initial review to 2 months. AEI volumes are ‘built’ online: articles will appear as soon as their content has been approved by the author(s), usually within 1 month after acceptance. Articles that the Contributing Editors and reviewers identify as groundbreaking will be published as Feature Articles. Initially, all AEI issues are published with Open Access. We are confident that AEI will quickly become a global leader for the publication of primary research on the interactions between aquaculture and the environment.
