Youtube clip on native fish migrations

June 21, 2010

Check out this video news clip on native fish by one of the Otago filmmaking students:

She also passed on the details of an Auckland Elam art student, Amelia Hitchcock, who is doing an art project collecting samples of water right around the country and finding out views about water. Take a look at her blog and facebook group and check out her discussion page where she interviews a lecturer about urban hydrology and water issues in New Zealand (also on her blog).

    Hey thanks for the plug! Information about my project/progress can also be found at – great to see other New Zealanders focussing on water. Will link on my blog back to yours.

      Sweet as. I’ll link to your blog too. And hope to send you some water samples from Southland. Good luck with it.

    That’s an enjoyable watch, well constructed and filmed with a good commentary, thanks. I’ll use that when I’m teaching. 10 years ago I headed a team (I’m still there!) that bought 6 hectares of wetland beside the estuary and carved waterways and ponds for the galaxids. The big issue for ‘bait around the estuary is floodgates and underground drains. Poor little buggers!
    I’ve a stream running through my place that has kokopu that come up from the estuary. It’s amazing how they survive really. Kingfishers are a problem when the fish are small. I’ve a spring too and the fish love it in there, til the kotare call.
