Tropical fish discovered at marine reserve

Tropical fish discovered at marine reserve

A tropical fish never before seen off the New Zealand mainland has been discovered at a Northland marine reserve.

The Department of Conservation was trialing a remote-operated camera when it discovered the small Damselfish swimming 80 metres down, in the Poor Knight islands off Northlands east coast.

Marine biologist Dr Debbie Freeman says the Damselfish was a subtropical species normally found in warmer waters off Australia, and the Kermadec Islands.

She says it is the first record of it around mainland New Zealand.
