IWI GROUP DIGS IN OVER SALMON FARM ALLOTMENTS
An iwi group has accused the government of acting in bad faith over a new salmon farming space in Marlborough.
Iwi was told there was no further space available for salmon farming in the area, and accepted a cash payment in a treaty settlement.
However, the government recently created space for the relocation of six King Salmon farms.
Te Tau Ihu fisheries forum chair Richard Bradley said the government had gone back on its word.
"So we took cash and then found out the government's quite keen on creating some new space, course the iwi in the top of the south are a bit hacked off about [that] because our preference was always for space, not cash.".....
