New Zealand Freshwater Fish Database (extended)

Latest version published by The National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research (NIWA) on Sep 4, 2019 The National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research (NIWA)

The New Zealand Freshwater Fish Database (NZFFD) records the occurrence of fish in fresh waters of New Zealand, including major offshore islands. We maintain the database at our Wellington campus. Data stored include the site location, the species present, their abundance and size, as well as information such as the fishing method used and a physical description of the site. The latter includes an assessment of the habitat type, substrate type, available fish cover, catchment vegetation, riparian vegetation, water widths and depths, and some water quality measures.
