Special Issue: Safety and Health in Commercial Fishing, Aquaculture, and Seafood Processing


In January 2024, more than 160 occupational safety and health (OSH) researchers, safety professionals, industry members and students from nearly 30 countries gathered at FAO headquarters in Rome for The 6th International Fishing Industry Safety and Health Conference (IFISH 6). Based on the amazing work presented and the partnerships which developed as a result of the conference, the IFISH organizing committee has asked the Journal of Agromedicine to publish a special issue on the topic of OSH in fishing, aquaculture, and seafood processing.


The Journal invites submissions of original research and editorials of work either presented at IFISH 6 or relevant to the OSH topics of the IFISH 6 conference. Topics should directly discuss issues pertaining to OSH in fishing, aquaculture or seafood processing. Manuscripts discussing small-scale fisheries, high-risk maritime populations, novel interventions and strategic partnerships are encouraged.

For submission instructions, please see “Instructions for authors” on the Journal’s website. Manuscripts must be submitted via the Taylor & Francis' Submission Portal by September 15, 2024. Peer review will be completed during late 2024/early 2025. The anticipated publication date is April 2025.
