The Puhinui Stream site is in the eastern Manukau Harbour on a sandflat adjacent to Papakura Channel. It is close to the Puhinui Creek inlet and is part of a network of sites that were introduced to track harbour-wide changes in sandflat ecology.
Monitoring has taken place since 1987 and the site is sampled on a rotational basis for mud content and macrofauna, among other sediment characteristics. Mud content is low at this site and it has good health overall.
