~ Kaharoa ~

Designed primarily for coastal surveys, the 28-meter Kaharoa is capable of working throughout the EEZ and further afield. Kaharoa can trawl to a depth of 600 m and has surveyed most inshore fish species around New Zealand. A selection of trawl nets are designed to catch various target species. Electronic monitoring systems give information on gear depth, doorspread, net opening, and fish in the mouth of the net.

Kaharoa is also used for acoustic measurement of fish abundance, as a diving support vessel, and for survey work in biology, ecology, geology and sedimentology.
