Abstract

This report summarises results of subtidal surveys of marine animals and macroalgae undertaken between September 2012 and January 2013 within northern New Zealand marine reserves and fished coastlines. Surveys were undertaken through the Reef Life Survey program (RLS), an initiative that utilises the skills and enthusiasm of volunteer divers trained to a scientific level in underwater visual census techniques.
