(Anguilla dieffenbachii)

We have many eels living in our streams and eel feeding is a must when you visit us. Food can be bought at the entrance.

The easiest method to identify the long fin eels is by the Dorsal fin (top) extends further towards its head than the bottom fin.

The NZ longfins are classed by DOC as "at risk", which is very sad as they are beautiful fish.
