    He karangatanga te inanga mō ngā momo whakawhitiwhiti wai e rima, ngā ika ririki ka heke. Kua tata korehāhā ngā momo e whā o roto i te rima i te korenga o ngā puni kaiao, te patuhia e ngā taraute, te hao inanga me ngā ārai kei ngā arawai e aukati ana i ngā hekenga, pēnei i ngā kōrere. Ko te kōkopu taiwhara anahe kāore e tata korehāhā ana.

    Hāunga te inanga, he moeao ngā momo inanga katoa o Aotearoa. Ka noho ngā hua i waho i te wai mō te wā roa, ā, me āta marumaru i ngā otaota kia mākūkū tonu ai.

    Karangahia ai hoki i ētahi wā ngā kehakeha he inanga.

    Inanga me ngā momo inanga

    Tuhinga

    Nā Cheri van Schravendijk-Goodman

    He karangatanga matua te inanga mō ngā ika māpurapura ka haoa e te tangata, ka tunua ki te hēki rānei, he kai reka. Engari, e rima kē ngā momo ika ririki kei tēnei karangatanga. Ko te kōkopu nui, ko te kōkopu taiwhara, te kōkopu kaueapoto, te kōaro me te inanga. Kōrero ai ngā iwi o Te Pūaha mō tētahi atu momo inanga – he ‘inanga tuarua’ ki a rātou – ā, ko te pōrohe.

    Ko te inanga te momo ka tino kitea, he pai ake ki a rātou te whakaputa hua ki ngā wāhi wahapū, arā, kāore e tino totetote nei te wai. Ka whakaputaina e rātou ngā hua ki ngā tapa mauti, kia haere mai ai tētahi tai nui i te moana ki te awa, ka whakapiki i te hohonu o te wai, mā tērā e eke ai ngā ika ki ngā tapa otaota, ki reira whakaputa ai i ā rātou hua. Kātahi ka heke anō te wai, ka waiho ngā hua ki ērā wāhi mākūkū. Ka haere mai anō te tai nui, ka whakapiki anō i te hohonu o te wai, ā, ka rewahia ērā torongū ki te moana.

    Nō reira, kei te takiwā o te 200 maero te tawhiti i te whenua, ā, kāore i te tino mōhiotia ana, e ahatia ana aua torongū.

    Ērā atu o ngā ika ririki – ngā kōkopu, ngā kōaro – kāore hoki e mōhiotia ana ngā nekehanga o ā rātou mahi whakaputa hua. E tino mārama ana ngā nekehanga a ngā inanga, nō te mea ko ērā ngā ika e mārama nei te kitea,  ā, he maha hoki ngā inanga. Engari anō ngā kōkopu me ngā kōaro, ka rata kē ki ngā kōawa tokatoka, he nui ngā tauwharenga me ngā hikuwai anō hoki.

    E mahitahi ana mātou ko NIWA ki te whakangūngū i ētahi tāngata e noho ana ki ngā rohe hōpuapua, kia whai pūkenga ai rātou ki te haere ki te aro turuki, kia kohikohia ngā kōrero mō ngā kōkopu me ngā kōaro.
