Northland Lakes Ecological Status 2013

Northland Regional Council (NRC) engaged NIWA to assist in achieving its goal "to prevent deterioration in water quality and loss of biodiversity value in Northland lakes". The baseline report (Champion et al. 2005) has been updated annually and this is the 2013 update.
