Twelve beaches in the greater Auckland, Northland, and Bay of Plenty regions were surveyed to estimate the distribution and abundance of pipis (Paphies australis) and cockles (Austrovenus stutchburyi) in 2011. The total cockle population increased at seven beaches. The total pipi population significantly increased at two beaches and declined at two other beaches. Most beds showed a decrease in the number of harvestable-sized (i.e. large) cockles and pipis.
