Who we are

Within the Aquaculture and Fisheries group of Wageningen Univrsity we work on many aspects of fisheries ecology. Our work is often in collaboration with research programs and groups across the Wageningen campus. In addition, we are involved in collaborative research projects with partners around the world.

Our research includes a broad range of topics that include the ecology and evolution of invasive species, abundance estimation of marine resources, and governance of small-scale fisheries.
