AquaRing is an online resource for information on aquatic sciences, set up through an EU project which ran from October 2006 to March 2009. Its content was provided by European aquariums, natural history museums and science centres.

The central objective of the project was to pioneer accessible and qualified use of available digital resources about aquatic world in national gatherings.

The project addressed the cultural/scientific sector of marine and aquatic sciences with the aim at setting up a comprehensive digital content collection to integrate and harmonise original contents provided by science centres, natural history museums and aquariums in Europe. The portal can be accessed at www.aquaringweb.eu.

AquaRing was funded with support from the European Commission through the eContentplus programme and received funding under a grant no. 038261.
