About the book

Salmon aquaculture has been developing rapidly in the recent years to provide humans with high-quality salmon products. Even though some technical problems pose a serious threat to the salmon aquaculture, the production of novel technologies promotes its sustainable development.

The aim of this book is to introduce the salmon aquaculture to readers and include topics on fish nutrition, fish biological features, fish diet, aquaculture technology and facility, diseases control, aquaculture environment, techno-economic analysis, etc. We firmly believe that this book will be helpful towards understanding the newest research progresses in salmon aquaculture and providing the readers, technicians and academic researchers with practical technologies.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Marijana Francetic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
