Results from a 99 day deployment of a recording current-meter 100 m above the bottom on the Tasman Abyssal Plain are presented. Strong southwards currents, up to 37.1 cms, were encountered. Kinetic energies are comparable with those found at abyssal depths under the Gulf Stream and the Kuroshio. Tidal currents are weak, of order 1 cms. Author
