    its lake ellesmere/te waihora, about 10km from my house.
    -the largest lake in the south island.
    -every 4 years or so for the last 500 years or so the spit gets opened up to allow the eels to enter and leave for breeding

    as for LOTR, the south island locations were filmed in otago mostly, several hundred kms south of me.

    You probaly guessd that Ive never been to New zealand. It must be a great place for hiking or cycling, do you have any more pics of your area?

    so did the Maorys build that spit you mention if its been in use for 500 years? I never eaten eels either..

    the spit is a natural formation, the lake usually flood over it once a year durnig which time there is 3 or 4 days where the spit is covered with eels crawling to the ocean. but startnig way back with the maori it was opened up artificially every few years for the small ones to return.
    i remember going down their a few years ago with some other people and throwing hundreds of dying eels into the lake to try again next year.

    map of the lake:

    Great to think that people that long back were plannin + helping wildlife, keeping the numbers up.. when a lot of us stil cant manage our fisherys today! It must have been qite a job for them to open that spit, without machines..

    it was only about 10 metres wide, the taumutu tribe was about 250 people, so not that big of a job really

    and it want really until they moa had been wiped out that maori realised wildlife was limited and had to be conserved

    Oh not again! We've discussed numerous times what that symbol means. Just because you're angry it doesn't mean you may act ignorant. He's gone to sleep anyways.
