  2. Bugger me another species thats unwanted is now in the Waikato river. Asian clams' https://www.mpi.govt.nz/news/media-releases/call-for-community-vigilance-as-new-clam-species-found-in-waikato-river/ Initial checks have found the freshwater gold clam present over a 45-kilometre stretch of the Waikato River, from 1.5km upstream of Bob’s Landing, just upstream of Lake Karāpiro, and downriver to Hamilton. Mr Anderson says the plan now is to search further, both within the Waikato River and in other rivers and lakes that are linked through human activity.

  11. Haha been here since 2021 but no action till 2022 https://niwa.co.nz/news/marine-invader-caulerpa-triggers-biosecurity-response Two new species of non-indigenous algae were discovered in mid-2021, identified by NIWA researchers as Caulerpa brachypus and Caulerpa parvifolia. New Zealand has some native species of Caulerpa but the two species identified in 2021 showed similar characteristics to the highly invasive Caulerpa taxifolia that has been problematic overseas. Caulerpa taxifolia has been listed as a Notifiable Species under New Zealand’s Biosecurity Act since 2001.

Significant efforts have been made to elucidate the invasion history and geographic sourc

  14. https://www.cruisemapper.com/ports/great-barrier-island-nz-port-5496 Great Barrier Island is located in outer Hauraki Gulf, New Zealand, approx 100 km (60 mi) northeast of Auckland. The Island covers a total area of 285 km2 (110 mi2), ranking it New Zealand's 6th-largest. Its highest elevation point (Mt Hobson) is 621 m (2037 ft) above sea level. Cruise ships to Great Barrier Island dock/anchor at Tryphena - a port town on the southwestern coast. So there would be a possibilty this is where it came from pre 2022?
