Koaro (Galaxias brevipinnis)

Kōaro

Ko ngā kōaro (Galaxiasbrevipinnis) ngā momo ika wai māori rahi rawa ki Aotearoa. Kitea tēnei momo ika i ngā pito katoa o te weherua tonga o te ao – Aotearoa, Ahitereiria, Tonga o Āwherika, Chile, Āketina. Te nuinga o tēnei momo ika he ririki noa, pēnei i te kōaro. Ka tareka e te kōaro te eke wairere ki te rapu kāinga hōu mōna. He matatau ngā kai hī īnanga mō tēnei āhuatanga, i te mea ka piki te kōaro i ngā tahataha o ā rātou pākete.
