W-ARE is a WUR-wide initiative and provides an easily accessible online portal for its research expertise, facilities and education on aquaculture. According to a press release from the university, it “stands for the shared ambition of Wageningen University and its Research Centres to work on several if not all aspects of sustainable aquaculture. W-ARE not only accommodates scientific specializations but also highlights both, internal and international collaboration emphasizing a collective effort at Wageningen to explore the potential of nature to improve the quality of life under water”.
