Latest version published by The National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research (NIWA) on Aug 9, 2018 The National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research (NIWA)

These macro-invertebrate data incorporate the results from the national river water quality network (NRWQN) from 66 sites throughout New Zealand for the purpose of monitoring long-term trends. The NRWQN was funded by the Foundation for Research, Science, & Technology through NIWA's Nationally Significant Database: Water Resources & Climate programme. Current funding (from July 2011) comes from the NIWA Environmental Information/Monitoring programme core funding. The data are collected annually in summer, and data collection was initiated in January 1989.
