A study in survival - how native fish climb

From Nine To Noon, 11:31 am on 27 January 2021

Freshwater Hydro-Ecologist Dr Eleanor Gee talks to Kathryn about how the ability to climb ramps helps native fish to navigate tricky waterways.

Scientists at Hamilton's NIWA laboratory are observing how they perform swimming up watery ramps in the lab. The trial results will contribute to the better management of fish passage as they encounter obstacles during migration.
