Lake Mahinerangi Stock Exclusion Project

Lake Mahinerangi Stock Exclusion Project

NZ Landcare Trust worked with Landcorp (Pamu) to bring together the various stakeholders of Lake Mahinerangi, to discuss and prioritise the staged fencing and stock exclusion from the lake edge of Lake Mahinerangi, Otago, and to manage any subsequent weed management issues which arise upon the fencing of the lake.

Goals of the project:

• To exclude cattle from the lake edge of Lake Mahinerangi.
• To protect native fish, sportfish and other aquatic life of the Lake and tributaries.
• To provide positive public perception both for the benefit the farming community and for any visitors to the area.
• To continue to allow and uphold angler access to important fishing areas.
• Maintenance of the marginal strip to an acceptable standard.
• Ongoing operation of the Lake for hydro-generation.
