This site is located on the intertidal Tapora Bank sandflat, close to the Kaipara Harbour entrance. Large volumes of water ebb and flood through the entrance with each tide, making this a high-energy site.
Monitoring has taken place since 2014 and the site is sampled for mud content and macrofauna every three months. The site has very low mud content and is in good ecological health.
