Healthy Harbour Watchers has established nine (9) standard sampling sites around Otago Harbour. The sampling sites were chosen to represent a cross section of the water types found within Otago Harbour, which range from pristine marine seawater in the lower harbour at Pulling Point, to terrestrially-influenced urban runoff in some areas of the upper harbour.

The location of each of the sites is given below:
