Fiordland (China Shops)

Fiordland has a globally unique marine environment, with many species found only in this area. These include protected black and red corals, which are found in Fiordland at shallow depths because of the unique combination of high mountains, high rainfall and rainforest.

The special zones known as China Shops are protected by the Fiordland (Te Moana o Atawhenua) Marine Management Act 2005. These small areas are outstanding for the abundance and/or diversity of animal or mixed animal and plant communities or for the abundance of particular animal species.
