Tasman’s Freshwater Fish

Thursday 5 September 2019

Learn about Tasman’s freshwater fish from a local expert. Trevor James is Tasman District Council’s Senior Resource Scientist and has been involved in monitoring and management of river water quality and aquatic ecology for almost 27 years.

In this fascinating talk, Trevor will be talking about the latest discoveries of the cryptic creatures of our waterways.

Our native fish are among the hidden treasures of New Zealand’s animal life because they are elusive and we know very little about most of them.

Most New Zealanders know about our whitebait, and our eels, but we actually have more than 50 species of native freshwater fish. They are secretive and fascinating, but also in serious trouble.

Listen to Trevor James talk about the freshwater fish living in our local waterways and gain a better understanding of the environment you’re living in at Richmond Library, from 12.00pm-1.00pm, on Monday 9 September.

This talk is part of a series of events focusing on the environment at Richmond Library this month.
