Wageningen University & Research (WUR) launched its WUR-wide ambition to be a major player on research and education in aquaculture: Wageningen Aquaculture Research & Education (W-ARE). It was launched by Geert Wiegertjes, professor of Aquaculture and Fisheries, who took the initiative to W-ARE with the aim to further stimulate cooperation in the aquaculture domain.

W-ARE is a WUR-wide initiative and provides an easily accessible online portal for its research expertise, facilities and education on aquaculture. Above all, W-ARE 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.
