Elian's Fish Survey.

With three sweeps on either side of the river this was going to take a while and with a shower of rain too at the first sweep.

As with the previous sweeps at the other site, a small but interesting variety of fish were found.

We also found on closer examination of the nets
hundreds, probably thousands of  tiny fish below 1cm in size.

Inanga one of the whitebait, migratory galaxiids

Sweeping towards the catch net.
Sweeping mid-stream. This wasnt too succesful probably due to no edge vegetation for the fish to hide in.
