Management Notes for this Location:
Threat to endangered species: The introduction of two tilapia species (Oreochromis mossambicus and Sarotherodon occidentalis) in 1955, followed by that of the largemouth bass (Micropterus salmoides) in 1960, has led
to a decrease in numbers of galaxias (Galaxias neocaledonicus). These introduced species preyed on the different stages of G. neocaledonicus (Keith 2002).
