About the Journal

Marine and Freshwater Research is an international and interdisciplinary journal publishing contributions on all aquatic environments and subject areas. The journal’s content addresses broad conceptual questions and may consider further implications and management applications of research. Environments range from groundwaters, wetlands and streams to estuaries, rocky shores, coral reefs and the open ocean. Subject areas include, but are not limited to: aquatic ecosystem processes, such as nutrient cycling; biology; ecology; biogeochemistry; biogeography and phylogeography; hydrology; limnology; management applications; oceanography; and toxicology. Contributions that consider marine and freshwater ecosystems as socioecological systems are welcomed if they emphasise these subjects and include implications for management. Manuscripts that largely address physiological, microbiological or fisheries subjects without adequate reference to the aquatic environment are generally not considered. Manuscripts that are focussed on the biology of single taxa and do not provide a sufficient discussion on the ecological implications of their results may not be accepted.


Marine and Freshwater Research is a valuable resource for researchers in industry and academia, resource managers, environmental consultants, students and amateurs who are interested in any aspect of the aquatic sciences.
