Krichever-Novikov algebras are two-dimensional algebraic-geometrical counterparts of Virasoro and Kac-Moody algebras. This paper is a concise survey about representations of Krichever-Novikov algebras, with the main emphasis made on fermion representations, which form a class of geometrically defined representations. The author also presents the Sugawara construction, description of quadratic Casimirs and the orbital theory for affine Krichever-Novikov algebras.
