Whangateau Harbour - Gem of Auckland’s Estuaries - Juvenille Parore

Whangateau Harbour - Gem of Auckland’s Estuaries - Juvenille Parore
Image by Roger Grace, published on 04/05/2011

Thousands of juvenile parore settle from their planktonic larval phase into the mangroves. Only 20mm long, they quickly develop the stripes typical of the adults. When the tide drops they move into shallow channels, returning to the mangroves when the tide rises.
