Resources

sealiongameThe NZ Marine Studies Centre produces a range of resources to support our programmes and research activities.  Some of these, such as our marine life database, can be used online.  Others may be downloaded.  These materials may be reproduced for educational purposes, but please ensure you say where they have come from.  We also have a selection of books and other publications for purchase.
