Noho ai te ōrea (Anguilla dieffenbachia) i ngā momo wai katoa, kōawa mai, awa nui mai, roto tuawhenua mai, roto taha moana mai, wahapū mātaitai mai, hāpua mai.

Ka roa ake i te 2 mita te roa o ngā ōrea, ā, ka roa ake pea i te 100 tau te kaumātua! Heoi, tē tino mōhiotia ngā āhuatanga katoa o tōna huringa ā-oranga. Whakaputa hua ai ngā ōrea i te mutunga o te huringa ā-oranga, ā, kotahi noa iho te wā ka pēnei. I te Ngahuru, haere ai ngā tuna pakeke i ngā awa me ngā kōawa ki te moana. E whakapae ana ngā kaipūtaiao, kei te takiwā o Tonga ngā wāhi whakaputa hua, engari, kāore anō kia kitea te whakaputanga o ngā hua. Nāte mea he momo tata korehāhā tēnei kua whakaitihia te rahi o ngā tuna e āhei ana te hī, waihoki, kua rāhuitia te rahi o te tinana o ngā tuna e āhei ana te hī hei tiaki i ngā uwha.

Kāore anō te ōrea kia aromatawaitia mō te IUCN Red List, engari e mea ana te New Zealand Threat Classification System, ‘kia mataara – e heke haere ana.’
