Ōkahu Bay restoration: Internship report
Author: Ani Kainamu, Supervisor: Dr Dan Hikuroa. This project fulfils part of the Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga summer studentship project that looks at the elements of ecological and Mauri restoration at Ōkahu Bay. This current study focused on the population abundance and distribution of marine benthic shellfish pipi (Paphies australis) and common cockle (proper name New Zealand Littleneck Clam; Austrovenus stutchburyi), and seagrass (Zostera) population. This project also measured the bathymetry within Ōkahu Bay, site that receives input from stormwater from the surrounding urban area.
