SALMON FARM PROPOSAL CAUSES CONCERN AMONG IWI
The chairman of an iwi fisheries forum has lashed out against a plan to relocate up to six salmon farms in the Marlborough Sounds, accusing the Government of dealing in bad faith.
The Ministry for Primary Industries wants to relocate five New Zealand King Salmon farms in Pelorus Sound and one salmon farm in Tory Channel, and claims the changes would bring economic and environmental benefits.
Te Tau Ihu customary fisheries forum chairman Richard Bradley said the plan was "not honourable".
