The Taniwha is one of the more ancient mythical beings which are said inhabit the depths of the sea and rivers.
It is the guardian of its realm and can punish those who travel on the water without showing the proper respect or protect those who do.
When a catch is made in a river or the sea, the first of the catch is always returned to the water as a mark of respect for the Taniwha and its domain.
