Critter of the Week: Dusky Galaxias

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 3:30 pm on 19 February 2021

This week's critter is an incredibly rare and endangered small fish.

The Dusky Galaxias, or Duskys, is found only in Eastern Otago waterways and belongs to an ancient scaleless fish family.

DOC's Nic Toki tells us why Otago has become such a hot spot for that particular fish family.
