Fishes of the Kikori Basin........More Unique kinds than any place else in Papua New

When scientists collected fishes in the streams and rivers of the Kikori Basin, they found that out of all the river drainage system in the entire island of New Guinea, the Kikori Basin river system had more kinds of fish found no place esle in the world.

The first blind fish (no eyes) discovered in New Guinea was discovered in the rivers that run underground in the Kikori Basin in 1995. Fish with no eyes ! They spend their whole lives in the dark !

One reason why the Kikori Basin is such a special place for fish is because the forests still hold the soil from washing into the rivers.

Are the Kikori Basin's fish important enough to local people so that they will keep looking after their habitats ?
