Non-diffusive, anomalous transport is related to non-locality, so that the standard Fick's law cannot represent the flux-gradient relation. Here we revisit the fractional Fick's law for turbulent plasmas. We propose to use the Caputo fractional derivative of order $\beta < 1$ to express the particle flux in a bounded system. Simple steady-state solutions are given: in the case of a plasma at rest, we show that the solutions are power laws of order $\beta$; then we consider an advection-diffusion equation, and we show that the solutions are given by the Mittag-Leffler functions.
