Last Update 3rd Feb 2014
everyone. This site is managed by me, Kenichi Miyamoto. I live in Auckland
city of North Island of New Zealand. The main purpose of this site is to introduce
“Fish I have encountered through fishing”, “Fish I have caught with traps”,
and “Fish I have bought form fish markets”.
I am sure many people have interest in fishes that inhabit in New Zealand and the reason of creating this site is to offer information to those people.
Fishes that appear in this sites are mainly “Fish that inhabits in New Zeleand”, furthermore, “Fishes that are imported through trade from Oceania ocean”. Basically, the fishes are those that I have encountered and I am not necessarily trying to cover the entire kinds of fish that inhabits in New Zealand. My business is running Japanese Yakitori Restaurant and I am not a professor nor a professional researcher of fishes. Therefore you may encounter some errors in this site, but I will gain my information by using many reference and materials to maintain good accuracy in the information that I provide. Also you have to be aware that some fish kinds, especially Tripterygiidae and Gobiidae where over 2100 types exits in the world, are very difficult to indentify and are still tentative. Regarding the identification methods of the fishes please refer to “About NZken”.
If you encounter any query or error it would be greatly appreciated if you could contact me.
Also, photographes that appear in this site involved great amount of time in their production where I took great care for every single shot, so I would kindly decline any usage of them for your purpose without gaining my permission.
