Fieldwork is now underway with two vessels deployed to capture hydrographic data at Banks Peninsula. The survey area extends around the Peninsula from Awaroa / Godley Head to Birdlings Flat and includes Akaroa Harbour. The data collected will be used to update navigational charts for the many commercial and recreational mariners who operate in this area. The data will also be used to help make informed decisions about resource management and marine biodiversity. While its still early days in the survey local wildlife is being seen in abundance.
