Cook Strait as a field for ecological study: Discussion

Report to Annual Meeting
A. C. Kaberry (Chairman)  

[First paragraph(s)...]
Commenting on the significance of the papers read during the morning PROF. L. R. RICHARDSON said that 15 years ago there was very little information available in regard to Cook Strait of the kind with which the meeting had been presented. It could be seen from the information contained in the papers that knowledge was rapidly advancing, and that the Cook Strait area would in future become one of the most "researched" in the world. He asked on how many stations the present knowledge of the geology and physical oceanography of the Strait was based.
