  • Estimating the abundance of scampi in SCI 3 (Mernoo Bank) in 2013

    Tuck, Ian; Parkinson, D; Armiger, H; Smith, M; Miller, A; Rush, N; Spong, K (2015)

    Report
    The University of Auckland Library

    Photographic and trawl surveys of scampi in SCI 3 were conducted in September/October 2013. Estimates of burrows have increased steadily since 2009, with estimates of scampi showing a smaller relative increase. Trawl catch rates were comparable with 2010, and higher than 2009. Over 3300 scampi were tagged and released to investigate growth, and recaptures to date have been low. Scampi emergence patterns were investigated with acoustic tags.

  • Estimating the abundance of scampi in SCI 6A (Auckland Islands) in 2013

    Tuck, Ian; Parkinson, D; Armiger, H; Smith, M; Miller, A; Rush, N; Spong, K (2015)

    Report
    The University of Auckland Library

    Photographic and trawl surveys of scampi in SCI 6A were conducted in March 2013. Estimates of burrows were slightly lower than 2009, but estimates of scampi were comparable with the previous survey. Trawl catch rates were slightly higher than 2009, but comparable with 2007 and 2008. Over 6600 scampi were tagged and released, to investigate growth, with over 100 recaptures to date. Tag mortality was estimated. Scampi emergence patterns were investigated with acoustic tags.

  • Evaluation of Auckland Regional After-Hours Network and the After-Hours Initiative

    Tenbensel, Timothy; Edlin, Richard; Field, A; Walton, L; Neuwelt, Patricia; McNeill, Robert; Rees, D (2013-04-24)

    Report
    The University of Auckland Library

    Over the past two decades, access to available and affordable after-hours medical care has emerged as a health policy issue in New Zealand, and in Auckland in particular. In 2011, the Auckland Regional After-Hours Network (ARAHN) - a network of health services funders and providers including District Health Boards (DHBs), Primary Health Organisations (PHOs) and Accident and Medical clinics (A&Ms) - was formed with the objective of addressing the need for coordinated after-hours care in the Auckland region. ARAHN developed the After-Hours Initiative (AHI) which was comprised of the following components: • Subsidised patient co-payments at 11 participating A&M clinics across the Auckland region for 5 categories of patients (under 6s, over 65s, Community Service Card holders, High User Health Card Holders, and residents of high deprivation Census areas) • Opening hours of 8am – 10pm for all 11 participating A&Ms • Subsidised of telephone triage services provided by HomeCare Medical Limited (HML). The AHI was developed to address identified barriers to affordable and accessible after-hours care. Many participants in ARAHN also saw it as a way of addressing the problem of increasing rates of hospital Emergency Department (ED) utilisation. This initiative built on a number of pre-existing services and contractual arrangements. Collectively, DHBs, PHOs and A&Ms contributed $11.8m to fund the three components of the AHI for the 22 month period of 5 September 2011 to 30 June 2013. However, only about $3.2m of this can be considered as new investment into after-hours services. A team of researchers led by the University of Auckland’s School of Population Health were contracted by ARAHN to provide an independent evaluation of the After-Hours Initiative and the progress of the network. The evaluation primarily considers the impact of the additional funding of after-hours services in Auckland. The evaluation team collected data on after-hours service utilisation, carried out a survey of over 500 after-hours patients and conducted 17 key informant interviews.

  • HD Sheep Model (A-2476) Project Report October 2011

    Reid, Susanne; Bawden, S (2011)

    Report
    The University of Auckland Library

    This Interim review provides a summary of the work that has been undertaken by researchers from SARDI and University of Auckland on the HD Sheep Biomolecular project over the 6 month period from 1st April 2011-30th September 2011. This report does not include data that was incorporated in the previous report unless noted. The aim of this work is to further characterize the ovine model of Huntington's disease (HD) in order to gain a better understanding of disease progression, and to establish it as a therapeutic testing system. Our objective was to develop a model that will recapitulate the progressive, late-onset characteristics of the disease expressing the full-length huntingtin protein with a moderate (in model terms) CAG repeat size. Although not yet conclusive, we have good evidence that the model will fulfill our initial objectives. Support from the CHDI since October 2009 (A-2476) has enabled the characterization and flock expansion of the sheep transgenic model, identification of the transgenic line "Kiwi" as the favored line for future analysis, establishment of tissue collection protocols and molecular/pathological methodologies for monitoring "disease" progression in the model. A limited breeding program has been initiated from two Taffy line animals that exhibit higher mRNA expression than other Taffy animals, along with detectable transgene protein in skin biopsy. Unlike the Kiwi line, we now know Taffy has multiple integration sites, explaining the variable levels of expression seen. This additional breeding will establish if a viable additional line can be generated, showing adequate and stable transmission. The Kiwi line demonstrates reliable and stable expression of the transgene and repeat. MGH capture sequencing has identified the Kiwi transgene insertion site is at a single locus in an intragenic region. Analysis of harvested brain tissues as the animal's age will demonstrate the extent to which the human disease is being recapitulated. The oldest transgenic sheep have been preserved as a result of SOC discussions, given the intrinsic value of their age with respect to observations of disease progression. A SOC decision was also made to delay the harvest of 18 month animals until 2 years, primarily based on the observation of a small number of inclusions seen in 2 of the 3 18 month animals. The decision to delay sacrifice was to allow phenotype advancement. Therefore the only animals harvested and assessed for a molecular phenotype within the time frame of this contract are 6 months old, with the next harvest scheduled for March 2012 (2 year old animals).

  • Trends in resourcing and employment practice of Canterbury construction organisations

    Chang, Yan; Wilkinson, Suzanne; Seville, E; Brunsdon, D (2016-02-29)

    Report
    The University of Auckland Library

    Five years on since the first major earthquake struck the Canterbury region, the reconstruction is well advanced. Christchurch is a city in transition. This report considers trends in resourcing and employment practice of Canterbury construction organisations in response to the projected market changes (2015-2016). The report draws on the interviews with 18 personnel from 16 construction organisations and recovery agencies in October 2015. It provides a summary of perceived changes in the construction market in Canterbury, evidence of what steps construction businesses have been taking, how they have prepared for likely changes in the reconstruction sector, as well as the perceived alignment of public policies with the industry response.

  • Capacity and capability development of Canterbury subcontracting businesses: Features, motivating factors and obstacles

    Chang, Yan; Wilkinson, Suzanne; Seville, E; Brunsdon, D (2016-02)

    Report
    The University of Auckland Library

    This report provides an understanding of the nature of Canterbury subcontracting businesses operating in the space of earthquake reconstruction in Christchurch. It offers an in-depth look at the factors that influence the development of their capacity and capability to withstand the impact of volatile economic cycles, including the 2008 global financial crisis and the subsequent 2010/11 Canterbury earthquakes. There have been significant changes to the business models of the 13 subcontracting businesses studied since the earthquakes. These changes can be seen in the ways the case study subcontractors have adapted to cope with the changing demands that the rebuild posed. Apart from the magnitude of reconstruction works and new developments that directly affect the capacity of subcontracting businesses in Canterbury, case studies found that subcontractors’ capacity and capability to meet the demand varies and is influenced by the: subcontractors’ own unique characteristics, which are often shaped by changing circumstances in a dynamic and uncertain recovery process; and internal factors in relation to the company’s goal and employees’ needs
