Abstract
    New Zealand has a relatively small native fish fauna, just 38 described species (McDowall 1990), a small number relative to the 95 in Japan, a land of similar size. Eels are the largest and most frequently encountered native species in New Zealand, and often make up 90 % or more of the biomass (total weight) of fish in a river or stream (Rowe et al. 1999).
