2016 - Kermadecs biodiversity

The voyage to the Kermadec region is a collaborative expedition between NIWA, Auckland Museum, Kelly Tarlton’s, Department of Conservation, Auckland and Massey Universities, The PEW Charitable Trusts and Te Papa. Scientists want to learn more about the habitats and diversity of the region, especially in the deeper waters where little work has been undertaken.

This page highlights some of the research being carried out during the 20-day scientific expedition in the region from our flagship Research Vessel RV Tangaroa.
