Overall Research Objectives:
To determine the distribution, abundance and size frequency of cockles and pipi on selected beaches in the Auckland Fisheries Management Area for each year of this project.
Specific Research Objectives:
1. To determine the distribution, abundance, and size frequency of cockles and pipi on selected beaches in the Auckland Fisheries Management Area for each year of this project.
2. To sample sediment at these beaches to provide a baseline of sediment composition against which any changes in shellfish distribution, abundance, and size frequency can be compared.
3. Report the abundances and trends over time at the surveyed sites, and within the context of all surveyed sites under the Auckland Intertidal monitoring series, and compare these with the findings of the Hauraki Gulf community shellfish monitoring programme and the Northland Regional Council programme (where possible).
Note: For each year of the project the selected beaches to be surveyed will be determined after consultation between MPI and relevant stakeholders. The list of beaches will be made available to prospective research providers prior to December, but a list of sites we are consulting on will be available prior to that date.
