Critter of the Week: The redfin bully

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 3:30 pm on 22 October 2021

The redfin bully is the jewel of New Zealand’s freshwater fish species with distinctive red patterning on its fins and tail. The redfin is a powerful swimmer: hatchlings are swept out to sea and return as juveniles to live in freshwater streams and rivers.
