He ika tau te kōaro (Galaxias brevipinnis) ki te piki; he whānui ōna pakikau, he kaitara whakapiripiri kei raro iho. Ka taea e tēnei ika te piki ngā hīrere poupou.

Kitea ai tēnei ika moke, moeao hoki i ngā kōawa e tere nei te rere o te wai, he mātao te wai, ā, kei te ngahere hoki te kōawa.

Ka ora ngā kōaro nei mō ngā tau tekau mā rima neke atu, ā, neke atu i te 400 kiromita te tawhiti o tana haerenga whaka-te-uta, neke atu i te 1,300 mita te teitei o tana pikinga.

Pēnei i ngā kōkopu, ka whakaputa hua ngā kōaro i ngā otaota i ngā kōawa ngahere i te paringa o te wai, heoi anō, ka whakaputa hoki ngā kōaro i ngā hua i te whaiawa kirikiri o te kōawa. Ka rewa ngā torongū ki te moana, ka tupu i reira i te wā o te hōtoke, ā, ka heke anō ngā punua hei inanga ki te hikuwai o ngā awa i te kōanga. Heoi anō, tērā ētahi kōaro ka noho pūroto – ka whakatutuki i ō rātou huringa ā-oranga i te wai māori – e kīia ana tēnei ko te noho pūroto. He maha ngā rāngai kōaro noho pūroto, puta noa i te motu.
