Distribution

The by the wind sailors are the second most common of the Blue Fleet that wash up on our shores, having been recorded from Cape Reinga to the bottom of the South Island. None have been recorded found around Stewart Island yet.

How often are they recorded monthly?

Comments

Looking at the distribution map on the East Coast of New Zealand they have only been recorded as found in
Henderson Bay - Otaipango, Real Far North
Wainuiototo Bay, Corromandal
Akito, Heretaunga
Around Christchurch and down by Invercargill.

If you are ever on the East Coast of either island keep a sharp lookout for these so we can get more obs for the vast areas where there is no data available :)
