Prof. Peter Munk is Dr. tech. at the Institute of Aquatic Resources, Technical University of Denmark. His research interests cover several aspects of Biological Oceanography, with special focus on fish reproduction, the fish larvae stages and the recruitment to fish stocks.  Further interests include Coastal Ecology and development of local fish stocks. 
Prof. Peter Munk has attended a long series of international multidiciplinary cruises around the world, studying fish larvae and ecosystems in different climatic zones. He will present an overview of major findings during his research. These will encompass results on fish larval behaviour, feeding and growth, both from laboratory and field studies.
