Marine biological data from the 2004 voyage of the R/V Tangaroa (TAN0402) to the Ross Sea, Antarctica. The main objective of the New Zealand Ministry of Fisheries project (BioRoss) was to carry out a quantitative survey of the biodiversity of selected marine communities in the Ross Sea region, including the Balleny Islands.

This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.
