``South Western Pacific Regional OBIS Data provider for the NIWA Marine Biodata Information System``
As at November 2005, this is a work in progress - data is being compiled and added to the NIWA Marine Biodiversity Information System (MBIS - a data warehouse). The data will cover an area from Antarctica to Fiji. Data so far available are primarily the results of a series of research trawl surveys carried out as part of New Zealand's Ministry of Fisheries data collection to support fisheries management within the NZ Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ), plus data from several decades of marine invertebrate research sampling in the NZ Exclusive Economic Zone.
