There were at least six of these fish in very small section of stream I was working in. I was helping a relative of my wife clear out a lovely spring feeder stream of the Mangapiko.

These chaps were very comfortable with me approaching quite closely for the photos. They also exhibited quite a lot of chasing behaviour between one another.

The spring creek is very choked with inkweed etc, but in the two places I could get a decent look, I found healthy giant kokopu specimens. I would imagine that there were many more that I couldn't spot.
