    Abstract

    A total of 70 freshwater macroinvertebrate taxa were identified from the 11,395 specimens collected. Of these 70 taxa, a total of 37 were endemic or native to Fiji. A total of twelve macroinvertebrate taxa were selected as potential bioindicators. The high number of endemic and native taxa recorded, as well as the high abundance of a large number of species is indicative of a healthy stream system. A major finding during the survey was a new record of prawn species for Fiji, Macrobrachium spinosum.
