 This report describes observation data from seafloor photographic imagery collected by NIWA’s Deep Towed Imaging System (DTIS) since 2006 that have been re-analysed for occurrences of litter, with emphasis on marine litter. From 169 000 DTIS records around New Zealand, 149 were of marine litter. Each occurrence was located in the original imagery and classified following the United Nation Environment Programme (UNEP) guidelines on remotely observed marine litter.
