- This article serves as an introduction to a Virtual Special Issue of Comparative Biochemistry and Physiology (CBP) focused on aquaculture. CBP has not traditionally had a focus on aquaculture, and the Editors sought to use this Special Issue to identify opportunities for synergy between traditional comparative physiology and applied physiology, such as aquaculture. Each of the four CBP journals has a dedicated special issue, with manuscripts that span the breadth of vertebrate and invertebrate species cultured around the globe. This overview is intended to identify the major themes of the submissions, as well as articulate a vision for the types of aquaculture-focused research that are well suited for CBP publications.
