Phone 09 423 9710 Fish research catches international attention By DELWYN DICKEY Others hooked: A native freshwater fish project by Mahurangi Technical Institute tutor David Cooper has gained international support. Photo: DAVID TATE A project by Warkworth's Mahurangi Technical Insti- tute has snared the eye of international freshwater fish conservators and researchers. At a United Kingdom con- ference of freshwater conser- vation biologists, research scientists and specialists from zoos and aquariums around the world last month, MTI tutor David Cooper was able to give a low-down on the conservation hatchery work the institute undertakes. In particular he covered breed- ing projects relating to short- fin eels and giant kokopu or native trout. The group took a special interest in a captive breeding project at MTI for the north- ern mudfish, which occurs only in the Northland region, a threatened species listed as nationally vulnerable. While there won't be any extra financial resources pro- vided for the project by the group, Mr Cooper says they will be following its progress with interest. Work at the Warkworth facility has been in the limelight recently with the release last year of the rare giant kokopu into the Nukumea Stream at Orewa as part of a project with the NZ Transport Agency to miti- gate negative effects of the Orewa-Puhoi toll road proj- ect.Another aquaculture tutor, Dr Tagried Kurwie, is also going to the Sargasso Sea off Bermuda in February on a research vessel from Germa- ny, as part of her research into New Zealand shortfin eels. The institute is involved with efforts to commercially breed the eels in an effort to safeguard their numbers.
