Didymo002 JLeekie

Didymo (sometimes colourfully called “Rock Snot”) is a noxious water weed which can ruin fisheries. We want to exclude Didymo from the rivers and streams around Lake Taupo. It is vital that it not be allowed to invade these important trout spawning waters. The threat of Didymo means that, as you move between fishing rivers, you need to be sure that all your equipment is thoroughly cleaned, so that the weed does not infect clean waterways. 

Waimarama Lodge supports the work of the Guardians of the Tongariro and others in the fight against Didymo and we urge all our guests to do the same. So far, the effort to exclude Didymo from the pristine waters of the Tongariro has been successful. Let’s keep it that way!
