Report - Aquatic Environment and Biodiversity (AEBR)
The Hauraki Gulf/Tīkapa Moana has declining health indicators. This review looks at the marine restoration potential in the gulf, with a particular focus on biogenic habitats. Terminology and frameworks used in the marine restoration literature are summarised, and the gulf’s past and present environmental history reviewed. Most biogenic habitats show loss, except mangroves. Knowledge gaps are highlighted, and suggestions are made for future research and management work.
