  • Abundance of mysid shrimp (Tenagomysis chiltoni) in shallow lakes in the Waikato region and implications for fish diet

    Brijs, Jeroen; Hicks, Brendan J.; Powrie, Warrick (2009)

    Report
    University of Waikato

    Tenagomysis chiltoni, a species of mysid shrimp, is widely distributed amongst the riverine lakes of the lower Waikato basin. They appear to thrive in turbid waters, with the greatest abundances found in lakes such as Waahi and Waikare, which have low Secchi transparencies and sparse aquatic macrophyte communities representing remnants of formerly dense beds (Kirk, 1983; Chapman el al., 1991). Maximum mysid abundances of 2,868 and 857 individuals m⁻² in Lake Waahi and Waikare respectively were recorded by Chapman et al. (1991) in March-April 1987. Anecdotal evidence suggests that mysid abundance in Lake Waikare is markedly reduced since the late 1980s (Gary Watson, Te Kauwhata, pers. comm.) with the arrival and proliferation of koi carp (Cyprinus carpio) presumed to be the cause. Koi carp arrived in Lake Waikare after 1987 and by 2007 it was estimated that over 80% of the fish biomass present in Lake Waikare was comprised of koi carp (Hicks, 2007). Sable isotope studies on carp (Matsuzaki et al., 2007) have shown that mysid shrimp can form a significant component of their diet. This suggests that mysid shrimp may be predated on by koi carp in the Waikato which has implications on mysid shrimp abundance as well as the abundance of native fish species which rely on mysid shrimp as a food source (Champman et al., 1991). The objective of this study was to measure mysid abundance in three shallow, turbid lakes in the lower Waikato basin (Lake Waikare, Whangape and Waahi) to compare with previous abundance estimates made in the late 1980s. A second objective was to determine whether mysid shrimp form a significant component of the diet of koi carp in the study sites by examining their stable isotope signatures.

  • Boat electrofishing survey of Lake Ngaroto

    Hicks, Brendan J.; Brijs, Jeroen (2009-10)

    Report
    University of Waikato

    Lake Ngaroto, a 130-ha hypertrophic lake located near Te Awamutu, has previously been found to contain a diverse fish fauna of both native and introduced fish. Native fish in the lake are common bullies (Gobiomorphus cotidianus), shortfin eels (Anguilla australis), longfin eels (Anguilla dieffenbachii) and common smelt (Retropinna retropinna). Introduced species include goldfish (Carassius auratus), brown bullhead catfish (Ameiurus nebulosus), rudd (Scardinius erythrophthalmus), gambusia (Gambusia affinis) and koi carp (Cyprinus carpio), with some koi carp/goldfish hybrids. As part of the ongoing research of the invasive fish research programme, run by the Centre for Biodiversity and Ecology Research (CBER), current baseline values for species abundance and indigenous biodiversity need to be established for at least 5 Waikato lakes over 5 ha in size, with Lake Ngaroto selected as a candidate.

  • Water flow between Ohau Channel and Lake Rotoiti following implementation of a diversion wall.

    Hamilton, David P.; Paul, Wendy J.; McBride, Chris G.; Immenga, Dirk (2009)

    Report
    University of Waikato

    The water quality in Lake Rotoiti has become increasingly degraded since the 1950s. Water from Lake Rotorua, with elevated phytoplankton and nutrient concentrations, has entered Lake Rotoiti via the Ohau Channel. To help improve water quality in Lake Rotoiti, a constructed wall was completed in July 2008, to divert water from the Ohau Channel towards Okere Arm in Lake Rotoiti, with the objective to transport this water into the Kaituna Rivr instead of entering the main basin of Lake Rotoiti. This report has been produced in response to a request from the Rotorua Lake Technical Advisory Group to determine water velocities in the region of the constructed wall, in order to consider the effectiveness of the diversion.
