Whitebait and mudfish (Galaxiidae) The Galaxiidae family is the largest family of freshwater fishes in New Zealand; there are about 26 species present here which have been divided into two genera, the galaxiids (Galaxias spp.) and the mudfish (Neochanna spp.).

Galaxiidae occur throughout the southern hemisphere - in New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, Chile, and Argentina. COVID Resources.

The Impact of Trout on Galaxiid Fishes in New Zealand Article (PDF Available) in New Zealand Journal of Ecology 34(1) January with Reads How we measure 'reads'. Abstract. Compared with the effect of invaders on the native terrestrial fauna of New Zealand, interactions between native fishes and introduced trout (sports fish in the genera Salmo, Oncorhynchus and Salvelinus) are less well known and there have been fewer efforts to remedy their by: By coincidence, the mussel family Hyriidae occurs in New Zealand, South America and eastern Australia in the same habitat with galaxiid fishes.

The dispersal of larva to coincide with the galaxiid fish, and evolution of the same relationship on different continents, would have been an ecological phenomenon that is hard to imagine.

The only galaxiid fossils currently known come from several Miocene lakes in southern New Zealand. They include more than articulated fishes, some remarkably preserving soft parts such as eyes and skin, skulls and jaw components, and more than isolated.

guides to New Zealand fishes that can be consulted. The most comprehensive New Zealand fishes identification guide available (Paulin et al. ) covers species but is now outdated for some species and is in the process of republication by Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa.

Non-migratory galaxiid fishes (Galaxias spp.) occur throughout New Zealand, although individual species generally have very restricted distributions. Species have been declining in both the number of populations and abundance due to a variety of causes such as changes in land use, impact of introduced species and water abstraction.

There are 12 species of non-migratory galaxiids and a further 13 indeterminate taxa recognised in New Zealand. These fish are not well known, and it is difficult to tell non-migratory galaxiids species apart.

Some species are only found in one or two rivers and all have a threatened or at risk conservation status. Compared with the effect of invaders on the native terrestrial fauna of New Zealand, interactions between native fishes and introduced trout (sports fish in the genera Salmo, Oncorhynchus and Salvelinus) are less well known and there have been fewer efforts to remedy their effects.

Trout have caused widespread reductions in the distribution and abundance of native galaxiid fishes, a family. Collins Guide to the Sea Fishes of New Zealand. by Tony Ayling and Geoffrey J. Cox. Usual superb Collins Guide Format. Very uncommon book due to limited print run. Condition Pretty Good.

Galaxiids are small fish that live in many of the streams of New Zealand. Before the arrival of man, these secretive fish ruled the fresh waters.

When European settlers came they brought along fish that were familiar to them; they introduced trout into many rivers and lakes.

Galaxiids soon had to compete with trout for food and territory. In book: Brown Trout, pp Cite this publication The factors controlling the effects of introduced trout on native galaxiid fishes in New Zealand streams were investigated by.

This book provides a synthesis of taxonomic and ecological information on New Zealand’s freshwater fish fauna. New Zealand has been isolated in the southwestern Pacific Ocean since it separated from Gondwana during the Cretaceous period, some 80 million years ago.

Brown trout Salmo trutta were introduced to New Zealand in Successful establishment was broadly predictable in terms both of the characteristics of brown trout and of the receiving community. An intensive study of the Taieri River has revealed that several native galaxiid fishes are now restricted to headwaters above large waterfalls.

Biography [ edit ]. Explore, discover and identify every known species of New Zealand fish in this encyclopaedic and beautifully illustrated guide. The Fishes of New Zealand represents the culmination of decades of collecting and taxonomic research by scientists based at New Zealand’s national museum, Te Papa, in collaboration with specialists worldwide.

It reveals the history, diversity and biogeography of the.Geological processes can strongly affect the distribution and diversification of freshwater-limited species.

In particular, a combination of geological and biological data has suggested that Earth history processes can drive vicariant isolation and speciation in non-migratory freshwater fishes. Here, we synthesise recently published geological and freshwater phylogeographic data to illustrate.Lise Wallis Comparative transcriptomics of migratory and stream-resident galaxiid fishes (Marsden-funded) Smita Apte Phylogeography and population genetic structuring of koura (Paranephrops spp.) (FoRST-funded) Jon Waters Molecular systematics of New Zealand galaxiid fish: speciation and biogeography (Marsden-funded).
