Aims: The diversity of aquatic life in the southern continents and oceans is of worldwide interest to researchers and resource managers in research institutions, museums, and other centres. The New Zealand Journal of Marine and Freshwater Research plays an important role in disseminating information on field-based, experimental, and theoretical research on the marine, estuarine, and freshwater biology of the region.

Scope of submissions: The New Zealand Journal of Marine and Freshwater Research is an international journal that publishes original research papers, review papers, short communications, book reviews, letters, and forum articles. We welcome submissions on all aspects of aquatic science in habitats ranging from lakes, streams and wetlands, to rocky shores, fjords and the open ocean. The journal places particular emphasis on Australasia, South America, Antarctica, and the Pacific and Southern oceans. The journal’s subject matter includes ecology, aquaculture, genetics, biodiversity, bioinvasions, physical oceanography, limnology, hydrology, aquatic biotechnology, and aquatic chemistry.

Prospective contributors should consult recent issues of the journal and contact the publishing team to discuss whether a planned submission is appropriate.
