The work of the Haus des Meeres is supported by 2 associations:
The “Association of Friends” aims to create an emotional bond for those who seek a deeper involvement in natural research, fish, amphibians, and reptiles beyond simply looking at the aquariums and terrariums.
The “Association for Science and Research” sees itself as a mediator between active research and popular science in the field of aquatic biology and presents topics of organismic biology to an interested public at events and lectures.
