Tekapo River Study
Freshwater Solutions has now completed its assessment of the Tekapo River for Genesis. The work involved collecting a range of physical habitat and ecological data in spring and autumn 2013 including surveys of periphyton, benthic invertebrates, native fish and trout. A range of sampling methods were used during the study including undertaking the first drift dive in the Tekapo River to count adult trout for many years. A report documenting the study methods and findings was provided to Genesis Energy in April 2014.
