Stewart Island Place Names ……
Toitoi ….. “To Bob for Eels”
This is completely understandable as name Toitoi applies to the bay, the river that feeds into it, and an extensive area of swampy flats a short distance up the river.
Although I have never investigated, the flats look to be good eel habitat.
But equally from memory there were extensive numbers of ToiToi grasses over the ToiToi swamps
Toitoi Flats can be seen in the middle distance
