Karangahia ai te kōkopu nui, he taraute māori, he taraute taketake, ā, ko tēnei te mea kaitā rawa o ngā ika ririki katoa. 

Ahakoa e āhua tau ana te kōkopu nui (Galaxias argenteus) ki te piki, kitea nuitia ai ēnei i te taha moana. Ka noho ēnei i ngā repo, ngā roto me ngā kōawa kei ngā ngahere, ā, e pai ana ki a rātou ngā wāhi ururua. Kitea ai ngā ika nei i ngā hōpua, i ngā tahatika rānei kua horo i raro i te wai.

Ka āta tupu tēnei ika, ā, ka ora hoki mō ngā tau e 20 neke atu rānei.

Pēnei i ngā kōkopu me ngā kōaro katoa, ka whakaputa ngā kōkopu nui i ana hua i ngā otaota kei ngā tapa kōawa i te parnga o te tai. Ka rewa atu ngā torongū ki te moana, ka tupu i reira i te wā o te hōtoke, i te kōanga ka hoki rātou ki te hikuwai o te awa hei inanga. Heoi anō, tērā ētahi rāngai ka noho pūroto, ka whakatutuki i ō rātou huringa ā-oranga i te wai māori anahe, e kīia ana tēnei ko te noho pūroto. Kitea ai ngā rāngai kōkopu nui ka noho pūroto, puta noa i te motu.
