Reply To: Fish Caught in the Canals

I’ve seen spent salmon in the Tekapo Canal near the bridge just up from the salmon farm. They would be resting almost motionless near the bank, looking almost dead, but then slowly swim back towards the middle of the canal when you approach the bank. I haven’t seen them in the Ohau Canals but they must be there I guess. Manky salmon do look a bit disturbing!
