Welcome to fishlarvae.org!

These web pages present the research activity being conducted at the Norwegian Institute of Marine Research by Howard Browman, Anne Berit Skiftesvik and Caroline Durif and our team of Post-Doctoral Associates, Research Associates, Technical Assistants, students and Collaborators. We also provide general information on the early life stages of marine fish and shellfish, and links to other web pages that might be useful to those interested in such matters (under the Resources menu item).
