Estuaries monitored to date include Jacobs River, New River, Bluff Harbour and Awarua Bay, Toetoes (Fortrose) Harbour, and Haldane, Waikawa, and Freshwater Estuaries. In 2008, ES added the Waiau Estuary to its monitoring programme, a 100ha gbsriver mouthgcs or hapua type estuary in Te Waewae Bay fed by the Waiau River and the Holly Burn. The current report describes the broad scale habitat mapping undertaken in February 2008. Broad scale habitat mapping is a tool used to assess the condition of estuaries. It includes mapping and condition ratings for key habitat elements including: estuary sediment types, macroalgal beds (i.e. Ulva (sea lettuce), Gracilaria, Enteromorpha), macrophytes (e.g. Zostera - seagrass), saltmarsh vegetation, and the 200m terrestrial margin surrounding the estuary.
