    Major salmon smolt release in Lake Tekapo

    A release of more than 50,000 salmon smolt aims to reinvigorate the fishery in Lake Tekapo.

    The project, a joint effort from Mt Cook Alpine Salmon and Central South Island Fish and Game, is part of CSI’s “put and take” programme in Lake Tekapo, which has been developed over the past 10 years.

    CSI Fish and Game officer Rhys Adams said the fish, raised at the Mt Cook Alpine Salmon Ohau hatchery on the Ohau Canal, “will need time to grow to between two and four pounds”. 11 November 2020 More info at
