Fisheries JournAl

In 2008 AFS will begin a new open

access electronic-only journal

devoted to the science and management

of marine and coastal

fish, fisheries, and fish habitat. This

peer-reviewed publication will

provide a highly visible outlet for

the growing number of marine

and coastal fisheries papers. The

format will encourage lively, current,

and transparent debate on

controversial topics through use

of comments, viewpoints, and

invited perspectives. The scope is

international and includes open

ocean, coastal, and estuarine

environments. Since there will be

no charge to access articles, AFS

hopes to reach the global fisheries

research and management community.

Editors and staff will focus

on rapid review and publication.

James Cowan, a professor of

oceanography and coastal

sciences at Louisiana State

University, is the new journal’s

development editor. He can be
