It is our unswerving aim to make IJMS the world's most outstanding publishing platform for academic journals in marine science, and peer-review is the most important for improving the quality of the work that we published. So here we’d like to express our special gratitude for those peer-reviewers who have done excellent review(s) for us:


Tzong-Der Tzeng, Professor, Dean of College of liberal education, She-Te University, Taiwan
Research interest: Population genetics and fisheries biology of marine organisms have been the major research focus in my lab. One of the major accomplishments is to develop molecular markers for marine shrimps and to address phylogenetic and population genetic questions. Population (or stock) discrimination by using morphological characters was also conducted, and species analyzed included marine shrimps and fish. Permutation test with discriminating ratio was developed and utilized in our papers. Stock assessment for albacore in the Atlantic ocean using ASPM have been executing recently.  

Desislava Rozdina, PhD, Laboratory of Ichthyology and Aquaculture, Department of Common and Applied Hydrobiology, Faculty of Biology, Sofia University, BULGARIA
Research interest:  The major fields of my scientific research are fish ecology and ichthyology, mainly temp of growth, reproduction, population structure, fish conservation and etc. I also work in the field of aquatic- and ichthyotoxicology, and fish diseases in aquaculture. My latest work has been focused on studying basic population-biology parameters, temp of growth and heavy metals accumulation in Alosa immaculata fromDanubeRiver.

Ma. Eugenia Vega-Cendejas, PhD, Center for Research and Advanced Studies of National Polytechnic Institute (IPN), Mexico
Research interest: Dra Vega-Cendejas studies on taxonomy and ecology of estuarine and freshwater fish communities. Also she has evaluated fish communities on impacted ecosystems and studied trophodynamics and energy fluxes in coastal ecosystems considering fish associations (structure) and the use of the ecosystem (function). She has contributed to Mexican ichthyological diversity and carried our explorations and taxonomic evaluations in protected areas (natural reserves). Recently She has integrated genetic and morphometric analysis for the fish taxonomy and ecological studies.

Okan Akyol, Professor Dr., Faculty of Fisheries, Ege University, Dep. of Fish Capture Technology and Fish Processing, Izmir, Turkey
Research Interest: Fisheries biology and population dynamics of marine species, fishing technology, zoogeographic distribution of marine species, interactions between fisheries and aquaculture. He has 20 years academic experience and so far, ha has 120 papers in national and international journals.

Zarrien Ayub, PhD, Centre of Excellence in Marine Biology, University of Karachi, Karachi, Pakistan
Research interest: Shellfish biology and aquaculture. Dr. Zarrien Ayub did her M. Phil. and Ph. D. in Marine Biology from the Centre, University of Karachi, Pakistan. Her Ph. D. work was based on the reproductive biology of penaeid shrimps. She did her postdoctoral study on  Development of biosecure, sustainable and cost-effective nursery and grow-out technology for the penaeid shrimp  from Texas A & M, University System, USA. She was nominated as one of the trainee in a three year CLIMA project 2006-2009 on Euro-Asian Research and Training in Climate Change Management.

Renato M. Honji, PhD
Laboratory of Metabolism and Reproduction of Aquatic Organism, Physiology Department, Institute of Biosciences, University of S o Paulo (IB-USP), Brazil
Research interest: Comparative physiology, especially on reproductive physiology and metabolism applied in aquaculture. Within this context, emphasizing those aspects: brain-pituitary-gonad axis; sex determination and differentiation; gametogenesis; energy metabolism; conservation physiology of endangered species; fish behavior; broodstock management and hormonal manipulations in fish reproduction; ecotoxicology and molecular biology.

Tamer El-Sayed Aly, Associate professor of marine biology, Oceanography Department, Faculty of Science, Alexandria University, Alexandria, Egypt
Research interest: 1) Producing of Nile tilapia in marine water by genetic engineering, in intensive system; 2) Rearing of Cat fish in different water salinities in close water systems; 3) Alternative protein sources (such as sea weeds and algae) for Nile Tilapia; 4) Design of a zero-discharge tilapia recirculating system.

Nashat A. Hamidan, Conservation specialist, The Royal Society for the Conservation of Nature
Research interest: Part of his work is focusing on the freshwater fish conservation and restoration. He established the Conservation project for the Azraq killifish Aphanius sirhani, and he was involved in many fish surveys and conservation project especially focusing on the endemics and critically endangered. His published work focused on the status of Jordanian freshwater fish, their conservation, and adaptation strategies in the context of harsh desert environmental conditions. He established some Ichthyofaunal surveys in United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, and Oman.

Swapnaja A. Mohite, Professor, Dept. Aquaculture, College of Fisheries, Ratnagiri, Maharashtra, India
Research interest: Fisheries management with doctorate in aquaculture. Dr. Mohite has worked on the biology of molluscs, especially clams. So far she has published about 48 papers in national and international journals and 4 books by international publisher. Currently she is working on a project entitled "Inventory and bio-prospecting of marine invertebrates of Maharashtra (India) with special emphasis on sponges and associated micro-organisms". She is in this field for last 20 years.

Md. Abdul Kader, PhD in Fisheries Science, School of Fisheries and Aquaculture Science, Universiti Malaysia Terengganu, Malaysia
Research interest: Aquaculture, Aquatic Animal Nutrition, Nutritional Biotechnology, Nutritional Immunology, Environmental aspects of Aquaculture.


Vaitheeswaran Thiruvengadam, PhD in Fisheries College and Research Institute, Tamil Nadu Fisheries University, O.M.R. Campus, Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India
Research interestFisheries stock assessment of (FiSAT software) finfishes and shellfishes, Biodiversity assessment of (Primer V 6 software) and taxonomy of crustaceans viz., prawn, shrimp, spiny lobster, squat lobster and crab.
