BSc (Natural Sciences), Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece (1969)
PhD (Fish Biology), Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece (1973)

Panos Economidis was the Director of the Laboratory of Ichthyology from its establishment in 1990 until his retirement in 2002. His main fields of research were focused on the ichthyofauna of Greece and the Balkans, taxonomy, limnology, freshwater fish biology, fisheries and aquaculture, as well as the protection and conservation of freshwater fish species. He supervised 13 PhD theses and was a member of the advisory committee in 34. He coordinated over 25 research projects.
