Latest advances in research on fish early life stages
The study of early developmental stages of fish has been pivotal in promoting interdisciplinary marine sciences, linking physical oceanographic, fisheries and conservation science. Building on the 43rd Annual Larval Fish Conference hosted in Mallorca (Spain) in May 2019, this Theme Section assembles original research articles, opinion pieces, short notes and reviews highlighting recent advances in the study of the early life stages of fish. Contributions will target a wide range of topics ranging from the application of new high-throughput analytical techniques to theoretical and quantitative advances in fundamental processes at the cellular to ecosystem levels (molecular and behavioural ecology, physiology, growth/mortality, trophodynamics), to practical and operational management applications.
