Description

The stuff of myths and legends...a juvenile hapuka at Trevor's Rocks. Spotted and filmed by Danielle Watson, this is one of the few recorded sightings of hapuka at the Poor Knights for a long time. Tom Trnski, Head of Natural Science at Auckland Museum, reckons it is Polyprion oxygeneios and we are pretty excited about this sighting!
