Asian Fisheries Science.
A new scientific journal, Asian Fisheries Science, has been initiated by the Asian Fisheries Society, MC P.O. Box 1501, Makati, Metro Manila, Philippines and is edited by J. L. Maclean, who reports that it is the first such regional journal dealing with fisheries and aquaculture research. The geographical scope of the new publication is the Indo-Pacific faunal zone, and it will feature studies and research activity in the various institutions and nations within that region. The institutional price is US$25 per volume (two issues), and one volume per year is scheduled. Airmail is $8 extra per volume. Individual subscriptions cost $12 per volume or $9 for Society members. The initial volume ran 106 pages and carried nine articles on topics ranging from the effects of eyestalk ablation on molting, growth, reproduction, and energy budget of Macrobrachium nobilii; leguiminous seeds as protein sources for milkfish, and maintenance of genetic quality in cultured tilapia, to parasites of wild and diseased young cultured golden snappers in Malaysia, aspects of reproductive biology of stolephorid anchovies in Papua New Guinea, and experimental culture of Penaeus semisulcatus, P. brasiliensis and P. penicillatus in Taiwan.
