Aquaculture International Impact Factor now over 1

Aquaculture International (AQUI) is the peer-reviewed journal of the EAS. Its 2012 Impact Factor (IF) is now 1.037, thus reaching one of the main objectives of the Editorial Board and EAS Board. After having an IF of more than 1.0 back in 1999, it slipped to 0.3 in 2003, but has gradually increased again since then. We are proud to see that it has now exceeded the milestone level of 1 and hope very much that this will encourage more publications from EAS members and non-members. See more..
