Short CV

  • B.Sc., Ichthyology and Fisheries, Technical School of Ichthyology and Fisheries of Messolonghi, Greece (1985).

Christides George is technologist ichthyologist at the Institute of Marine Biological Resources and Inland Waters HCMR. Has experience almost 20 years on research activities in the field, (with fishing trawls, coastal vessels and purse seines), elaboration of the samples in the laboratory. He has studied the trawls impact of the Greek seas and discards, and he has involved in studies on age, fertility and reproduction of fish and cephalopods and deep water fisheries.

He has been involved in several projects such as: DEEP FISH (EU/CT95-0655), MUGIL (INCO-CT-2006-026180), Campagne internationale de chalutage demersal en Mediterranee (MEDITS 96,98-GR).E.U.-N.C.M.R.,Contract No Etude 95/27, Development of the Greek fisheries’ assessment of demersal stocks that is commercially important in S.
