Watch Rebecca Jarvis describe the Hauraki Gulf use and values survey on TV3's Firstline
The Hauraki Gulf is an extremely precious taonga, highly valued by a wide range of people for different cultural, environmental, social and economic reasons. Over the next two years, a marine spatial plan is being created, called Sea Change – Tai Timu Tai Pari, to safe guard this treasure.Working close with Sea Change – Tai Timu Tai Pari, AUT University have developed a Hauraki Gulf use and values survey. This survey is designed so that anyone can add their own information on how they use and value the gulf inside the same online software being used for the spatial plan. The survey is open to the public from March 3rd until the 21stApril, and we want to hear from you!
|The survey has been designed by Rebecca Jarvis (email@example.com) and Dr Barbara Breen (firstname.lastname@example.org) of the Institute for Applied Ecology New Zealand, at AUT University. The results of the survey will be used in PhD research and to inform the Sea Change project.|
Our Institute has a mission to conduct high-quality research with relevance and immediacy to New Zealand and global environmental issues. Our research philosophy is collaborative, and we have strong links with leading academic and industrial partners. AENZ's Google Scholar profile

The Institute (AENZ) has 4 research clusters that reflect staff expertise and track
record in research:
Applied ConservationResearch in applied conservation focuses in two major areas: development and application of novel science tools in conservation, and socio-ecological systems as applied to human perception and use of NZ's natural environment. More...
Aquaculture & Fisheries
Aquaculture is one of NZ's fastest growing industries, and solutions to industry problems via biotechnological research are a strength at AENZ. Research projects range from hatcheries, to behavioural, life cycle studies, and assessments of environmental impacts. Additional research addresses the sustainability of coral reef fisheries in Pacific island communities, Pacific and Southern Ocean deep-sea fish and freshwater fisheries in NZ. More...
Bioactive CompoundsThe main focus of this research cluster is on nutraceuticals from marine natural products. Extracts and compounds found in seaweeds, shellfish and other marine organisms are evaluated for potential health benefits. These include antioxidant, anti-cancer, anti-diabetes, anti-bacterial and anti-cardiovascular diseases properties. More...
Global Change Ecology
We study the biological interactions associated with environmental change on a globally relevant scale. These range from understanding how marine environments will respond to future pollution, acidification and warming scenarios. A particular strength is our GIS-based capability, based upon use of UAV drone technology developed at AUT in collaboration with industrial partners. More...
We benefit from excellent research facilities. Our field capabilities include two marine research vessels and SCUBA, and we have pioneered the use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) for research in terrestrial landscapes in NZ. Major laboratory equipment includes aquaculture simulators and marine aquaria; analytical suite (AA, ICP, HPLC, GC, GC-MS, LC-MS, FTIR), microscopy suite (atomic-force, laser-confocal, Raman, SEM and TEM), plus high-throughput sequencing and real-time PCR platforms (illumina, Roche).AENZ is part of the Faculty of Health and Environmental Sciences at Auckland University of Technology.
