New Zealand Marine Life

By Auckland Museum

This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.


Use our marine field guide to identify over 360 of New Zealand’s most common coastal-dwelling marine mammals, birds, reptiles, fish, shellfish, invertebrates, seaweeds and plants.

This easy-to-use reference combines stunning imagery with information on each of the featured animal or plant’s biology, identifying characteristics, diet, habitat, native and endangered status.

Available in both iPad and iPhone versions, the app can be used in and around New Zealand’s coastal waters to identify some of the country’s diverse marine life. It’s the perfect companion for boat trips, fishing tours, a day at the beach or field trips around New Zealand’s coast.

Amateur or expert, this app is a great pocket guide to some of New Zealand’s more commonly found marine species. Offering English and Māori language, the app is also a great educational tool for kura kaupapa Māori, schools and universities.

Auckland Museum’s marine team and contributing scientists will continue to add additional species and update content in new releases.
