Salmon Farm Report Suppressed 

A report by a Scottish aquaculture expert - Prof. Kenny Black commissioned by the Marlborough Council has been suppressed in the meantime "pending further investigation". The report was commissioned to examine King Salmon's compliance with environmental standards, and clearly has embarrassing content that needs comment by King Salmon before release. 

Here is the report on the matter from the 'Marborough Express'.

This will need to be closely watched in view of the enthusiastic rush into aquaculture proposed right here on our back door by the WRC and TCDC.

It will also be interesting to see what emerges from the much heralded 'Hauraki Gulf Spatial Plan" that was launched at the Auckland Museum on Monday this week by a raft of political heavyweights, and to see what effect this plan may have on current aquaculture proposals - apparently advanced to the point where tenders are about to be called for designated areas.
