New Zealand Journal of Marine and Freshwater Research

The diversity of aquatic life in the southern continents and oceans is of worldwide interest to researchers and resource managers in research institutions, museums, and other centres. The New Zealand Journal of Marine and Freshwater Research plays an important role in disseminating information on field-based, experimental, and theoretical research on the marine, estuarine, and freshwater biology of the region.

The New Zealand Journal of Marine and Freshwater Research publishes original research papers, review papers, short communications, book reviews, letters, and forum articles. We welcome submissions on all aspects of aquatic science (including fisheries), with particular emphasis on Australasia, South America, Antarctica, and the Pacific. The journal’s subject matter includes ecology, taxonomy, aquaculture, genetics, biodiversity, bioinvasions, physical oceanography, limnology, hydrology, and aquatic chemistry.
