Peter Vine is a marine biologist and author with special interests in coral reef ecology, marine conservation, photography, and film-making.

An adjunct lecturer at National University of Ireland, Galway, he has researched and published extensively on the Red Sea. Having established the biological feasibility of mariculture in the Red Sea, he moved back to Ireland to develop one of the country's first commercial fish farms – a move that led to a new international enterprise with activities in the USA, Europe, and the Middle East.

A series of authorship commissions led to the establishment of three media companies involved in book publishing, film production and project development in support of a series of award-winning national pavilions at World Expos in Spain, China, South Korea, and Italy. Peter is married to Paula and has three daughters, Catriona, Sinead, and Megan, all of whom, with their respective partners, live and work in Ireland.

"...Normally, this would have been ample surprise to scare away a shark but this was a more determined individual. Instead of disappearing into the murky haze, it doubled back and came even closer than before."
