Subject: publication option for wild marine mammals’ health related
articles: *Animals* Special Issue - Infectious Diseases and Zoonoses of
Wild Marine Animals



Dear MARMAM subscribers,

*Animals* Special Issue - Infectious Diseases and Zoonoses of Wild Marine
Animals ((IF=2.323, Q1, Veterinary Sciences) is accepting articles related
to marine animals' diseases and, hopefully, will have a special chapter for
marine mammal Infectious Diseases and Zoonoses. Researchers in this field
are welcome to submit articles for peer review and contribute to marine
mammal research and conservation.

Over the past few decades, there has been a global increase in the
reporting of diseases affecting marine mammals. Climate change is
additional pressure on marine ecosystems that are already subject to many
anthropogenic disturbances, such as overfishing, pollution, and habitat
destruction. Environmental conditions play a crucial role not only in
pathogen transmission between marine mammals but also as risk factors for
clinical disease occurrence.

Dolphins, seals, sea lions, and other marine mammals are all susceptible to
infectious diseases and some of these pathogens can transmit diseases to
humans. Marine zoonoses represent a public health problem, which is an
understatement considering the status of the world's citizenry and
socio-economic fallout. Numerous pathogens and many different transmission
modes are involved, and many factors influence the epidemiology of disease
transmission. Surveillance, laboratory diagnostics, research, training, and
education are key elements in combating the upsurge of infectious agents
and zoonoses in and from the sea.
