A multi-year project to help restore and protect whitebait populations in the lower Waikato River is nearing completion. Funded by the Waikato River Authority, and undertaken by Waikato-Tainui and NIWA, the project involves research and physical works around spawning, habitat and fish passage. NIWA scientist Dr. Cindy Baker says the most recent focus is the movement of juvenile kokopu in the Puketirini Stream near Huntly.
