Comments Originally a marine biologist from the Free University of Brussels, Peter Pissierssens moved to Kenya in 1985 and developed the regional marine information network for eastern Africa (RECOSCIX-WIO). He also worked at UNEP Nairobi before joining the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission in 1989, again in Kenya. He moved to IOC headquarters in Paris, France in 1992, where he took on the marine information management activities for the IOC's International Oceanographic Data and Information Exchange (IODE). In 2000 he took over as Head of IOC's Ocean Services. In November 2007 Peter moved to Belgium as the Head of the IOC Project Office for IODE in Oostende, which is also the IODE Secretariat.
