Examine the effects of land-based pollutants on the mortality of taonga shellfish species in selected locations around Aotearoa New Zealand.
1. Identify and qualitatively assess the relative risk posed by historical and contemporary land-based pollutants to the marine and estuarine environments for selected locations around Aotearoa New Zealand, using a mātauranga Māori approach.
2. Collect and analyse sediment and invertebrate samples of different life-stages to detect identified pollutants and compare with known limits to understand the impact their presence may have had on life history, mortality, and suitability for human consumption.
3. Broader outcomes.
