The National Policy Statement for Freshwater Management 2020 (NPS-FM) requires regional councils to identify the critical habitats and conditions of nationally Threatened freshwater species and to set limits and targets for Threatened freshwater species in each Freshwater Management Unit. This report identifies the Threatened freshwater-dependent species and their critical habitats and conditions in the Wellington Region.
The list of Threatened freshwater species was based on the lists of nationally Threatened species that have been located in the Wellington Region. Freshwater-dependence was determined by considering the critical elements of the life-cycle and habitat-use of each species. The locations of Threatened species were determined from a wide variety of data sources. Each location was sense-checked from aerial imagery but field checks have not been made.
