Over 1500 photos from Wageningen Marine Research (IMARES) were recently added to Wageningen University & Research Image Collections.
These colourful photos all relate to marine and freshwater research. The collection mainly focuses on the Netherlands, specially the North Sea, Wadden Sea, Zeeland and Dutch Caribbean.
The collection brings together photos taken during scientific surveys and holidays, as well as images collected during joint expeditions with Stichting Duik de Noordzee Schoon and WWF. The collection contains images on the following subjects:
- marine life (e.g., fish, jellyfish, crabs, corals, sponges, shellfish, birds, marine mammals)
- different habitats (e.g., dunes, beaches, water, rocky shore, mussel beds, mudflats, ship wrecks)
- different types of human use (e.g., fisheries).
The photos can be downloaded for free and can be used and distributed for non-commercial use. The Creative Commons licences are applicable.
