This report describes the results of a 3-week towed-camera survey of the Campbell Plateau seabed in May–June 2020, following a similar survey on the Chatham Rise in 2016. The aim of the survey was to collect quantitative data for benthic invertebrates in a region of importance for commercial fishing, to develop, test, and improve distribution models for key taxa. The report provides preliminary descriptions of the seabed habitats and fauna encountered along the 82 transects completed.
