Fishbase welcomes Dr. Michael Noren as the new curator of Fishbase Sweden

 Michael Noren

Michael is an experienced zoologist who has frequently cooperated with Fishbase. “I started my career researching flatworms”, he explains, “but have always been interested in fish, and soon switched to doing research on carps and cichlids. I’m very happy for this opportunity to work with Fishbase, as a scientist I know how important it is with reliable and up-to-date information, especially in light of the strain the Earth’s aquatic habitats are under from climate change and the expanding human population.”

Michael takes over the position as curator for Fishbase Sweden after Fang Kullander, who passed away in 2010 after a long illness.
