WORD ABOUT OUR WATERWAYS… WHY LAKE WEED HARVESTING? ﷯Here at Lakeweed Harvesters we have seen our waterways deteriorate over the years. You don’t have to look far in the media to discover concerns about our clean green image being called to question in New Zealand. Throughout the waterways of New Zealand, there is a major problem with introduced aquatic weeds that have over taken vast areas in the last 20 years. This is of course unsightly, makes our waterways less accessible for boating, swimming and other water activities, and has a negative effect on wildlife living in and around our waterways. This is where weed harvesting comes in! By removing aquatic weed; it has the benefit of removing nitrogen, phosphorous and heavy metals out of the water column, so in a sense the weed is like a blotting paper removing the toxins at the same time.
This has an incredible effect on water quality, improving clarity, the abundance of fish and the recreation quality of the lake. This is why we are so passionate about sharing the benefits of weed harvesting. We are so sure it the best way to give back to our waterways. We reckon every Kiwi should have access to our world class waterways for generations to come. Thanks for reading!
