Later studies showed that that changes long ago to physical features such as ice-age lakes and the gradually uplift and downcutting (erosion) of rivers was the cause of such a diversity of freshwater fish evolving in Otago and the lower South Island.

Perhaps as the starting point for this radiation, Otago is now a hotspot for non-migratory galaxiids, home to no fewer than 11 species.

In order to get to know some of them, I accompany Daniel Jack into the hills behind Lawrence, a large catchment that provides Dunedin with its water supply. The obtained results can also be used to prioritize areas requiring water management and habitat conservation.

Several approaches have been proposed for conservation prioritization. However, as Kentula () and Ma et al. () discussed, wetland management is dependent on the type, function, and degradation degree of the by: Otago: decreasing native fish biodiversity, increasing water demands.

The Otago region is a ‘hot-spot’ for threatened native fish. Combined with Canterbury, the two regions host the majority of New Zealand’s threatened freshwater species.

This group is composed of rare non-migratory galaxiid species. Five of whichknown as the Otago. recolonising part of its historical breeding range, the Otago Peninsula (OP), since the s. This recolonisation has opened two areas of research: 1) data were needed for the management of interactions between humans and sea lions at sea and for marine habitat protection around the OP.

%20loop%20phase%_existing%20status%20and%20recommendations%20for% While habitat degradation caused by land‐use change may be involved (Hanchet ), Townsend & Crowl () found that land use in the Taieri River catchment (Otago Province) could not account for the observed galaxiid population fragmentation.

Rather, it was large waterfalls (higher than 3 m) that prevented trout invasion and provided Cited by:   Two native New Zealand galaxiid fishes [the kōaro (Galaxias brevipinnis) and the shortjaw kōkopu (Galaxias postvectis)] are declining throughout the country.

More knowledge regarding aspects of their ecology is needed in order for conservation actions to be optimally designed. A m reach of small upland stream in Manawatu, New Zealand was mapped to scale and inventoried for microhabitat Cited by: 3.

Management flows for aquaticecosystems in the Manuherikia Riverand Dunstan Creek i Technicalsummary The Manuherikia River (catchment area: km2) is located in Central Otago with its headwaters in the Hawkdun and Saint Bathans Ranges and Dunstan Mountains before.This research shows that migratory galaxiids are sensitive to the configuration of landscape elements and migratory baniers, factors that can be used in predictive models to differentiate and quantify distribution limitations due to migratory passage, catchment land use, and local habitat conditions.One of the objectives of the Regional Plan: Water for Otago (; Water Plan) ‘to retain is flows in rivers sufficient to maintain their life-supporting capacity for aquatic ecosystems and their natural character.

As a means of achieving this objective, the Water Plan provides for the setting of minimum flows in Otago’s rivers.
