I told my colleagues that PeerJ is a journal where they need to publish if they want their paper to be published quickly and with the strict peer review expected from a good journal.

Robert Arlinghaus

Professor of Integrative Fisheries Management at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin and the Leibniz-Institute of Freshwater Ecology and Inland Fisheries. Robert works on fisheries as coupled social-ecological systems and recreational fisheries sustainability. He has received several awards, including the Award of Excellence in Fisheries Management by the American Fisheries Society, the Medal by The Fisheries Society of the British Isles and the Cultura Award by the Alfred-Töpfer-Foundation. Robert is heavily engaged in public outreach and transdisciplinary studies on emergent topics in fisheries sciences.

Suchana Chavanich

Dr. Suchana Chavanich received her bachelor degree in Marine Science from Chulalongkorn University, Bangkok, Thailand. She then further pursued her master degree in Biology at Central Connecticut State University and her Ph.D. in Zoology at University of New Hampshire, USA. Later on, she was also certified as a scuba diving instructor.

Dr. Chavanich has a broad base of ecological research interests that involve the study of nearshore species from tropical to polar regions. In addition, her research focuses on conservation and restoration of marine ecosystems particular on coral reefs. Currently, Dr. Chavanich is also the Project Leader of Coastal Marine Biodiversity and Conservation in the Western Pacific under the UNESCO/IOC Sub-Commission for the Western Pacific.

In Thailand, additional to her research work, Dr. Chavanich is considered to be Thailand’s first female scientist to go to Antarctica and Thailand’s first female scientist to go diving in Antarctica. Her research work on Antarctica has inspired Thai and young people. Thus, in 2013, she was selected to be one of the 100 Most Inspiring People in Thailand, and in 2015 as one of 17 Asia Power Women of Inspiration, selected by Her World Magazine. Because of her work, Dr. Chavanich has received several awards, for example, UNESCO-IOC/WESTPAC Outstanding Scientist Award and UNESCO-L’OREAL For Women in Science Award in Thailand.

María Ángeles Esteban

Professor of Cell Biology in the Cell Biology & Histology Department, Faculty of Biology, Murcia University. She belongs to the research team of "Fish Innate Immune system" working on fish species of interest for aquaculture. She has been Vice-chancellor of the University of Murcia.

Jorge MO Fernandes

Professor in Genomics and Molecular Biology. My main research interests are antimicrobial peptides, microRNAs and the epigenetic regulation of myogenic gene networks by environmental factors, such as temperature and photoperiod. Recipient of the “outstanding young investigator award” from the Research Council of Norway in 2008. Founder of the Genomics in Aquaculture biennial symposium. Academic editor of Marine Genomics, Fisheries Science and Acta Histochemica.

Andrew E. Fidler

Broadly speaking, my research interests lie in the general field of adaptive evolutionary genetics (and epigenetics) of free-living, ‘non-model’ animals. However, the contexts in which these interests are explored vary widely – from the timing of godwit migration through to adaptive molecular evolution of tunicates (sea squirts).

Dany Garant

Professor of Ecology in the Department of Biology at Université de Sherbrooke. Associate editor of Molecular Ecology and Molecular Ecology Resources.

Malcolm Jobling

Professor of Fish Biology and Aquaculture. Authored and edited books on fish biology, physiology and nutrition, and aquaculture, and serving editorial board member for fisheries and aquaculture journals. Formerly, member of EUCost, ICES and academic society steering committees.

Magnus L Johnson

I am a marine scientist with eclectic interests including crustacean biology and fisheries, fisheries management generally, krill swimming behaviour, cleaner fish, diver interactions with reefs, the relationship of marine commensals and their hosts and the eyes of shrimps. I work in the School of Environmental Sciences at the University of Hull where I am the Director of Postgraduate Taught courses (MScs). I am a member of the UK Scientific Diving Supervisory Committee.

Jean-Lou Justine

Professor of parasitology at the Muséum National d’Histoire Naturelle, Paris, France.

A specialist of systematics of monogeneans and certain parasitic nematodes, also interested in parasite biodiversity in coral reef fish, phylogeny of Platyhelminthes and Nematodes, and land planarians. Curator of the collections of parasitic worms of the MNHN.

Former Editor of “Zoosystema” and “Mémoires du Muséum National d’Histoire Naturelle”. Currently Editor of “Parasite”, an open-access journal.
