凱庫拉海底峽谷

  • 最寬點5公里寬
  • 超過1600米深
  • 在大陸架邊緣,是幾乎垂直的懸崖落差超過1000米高
  • 離Goose Bay(陸地)距離1公裏的海洋深度超過800米。
  • 凱庫拉峽谷入口是Hikurangi 海槽的起始點
  • 凱庫拉峽谷綿延1700公里到北島,從接近吉斯伯恩的外海瑪希亞半島開始。
  • 凱庫拉峽谷是南半球上最大的深海峽谷
  • 凱庫拉峽谷是鯨魚在覓食地與繁殖地之間遷徙的系列峽谷之一

凱庫拉海洋食物源——亞熱帶交匯

  • 熱帶流下來的溫流與南極流上來的富含營養物的寒流交匯
  • 營養物流入峽谷混合,然後被推上海洋表面,這被稱為上湧
  • 形成食物鏈:浮游植物為浮游動物和磷蝦提供食物,浮游動物和磷蝦又是烏賊和小型魚類的食物,然後烏賊和小型魚類又是大型魚類、鳥類、毛皮海獅、海豚、鯊魚和鯨魚的食物。
