The work of the Haus des Meeres is supported by 2 associations:

Logo Verein der Freunde des Haus des Meeres
Logo Verein für Wissenschaft und Forschung

The “Association of Friends” aims to create an emotional bond for those who seek a deeper involvement in nature 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 organismic biology topics to an interested public at events and lectures.
