220472 Wairangi Bay Marine Farms Limited Marine Farm 8280, Wairangi Bay, Croisilles Harbour Wairangi Bay Marine Farms Limited (Wairangi Bay Marine Farms) has applied to renew the existing resource consent MFL076 for marine farm site 8280 (total 3ha) for the purpose of farming Greenshell mussels (Perna canaliculus), scallops (Pecten novaezelandiae) and Pacific oysters (Crassostrea gigas) using conventional long line methods including oyster farming methods (refer attached layout diagrams illustrating the site.)

Marine Farm Licence 076 was issued to the original consent holder in July 1980 under the Marine Farming Act 1971 and assigned to Wairangi Bay Marine Farms in May 2003. MFL076 expires on 31st December 2024.

This application is to renew consent for 8280 and to revalidate the consent boundaries in line with the structures as per the application site plan.

The realignment will not be more than 200 metres from shore. Apart from the slight shift seaward, every other respect it remains the same as was permitted prior to 1996. As such is it assessed as a controlled activity.

The application is for a continuation of the activities currently consented at the site. No changes to the activities are proposed.

The site lies within the boundary of the CMZ2, an area in which marine farming activity is a discretionary activity.

As this is a ‘like for like' application by an existing permit holder, the application should be processed under section 165ZH for the RMA. The applicant's adherence to the industry codes of practice, and its commitment to environmental programmes and activities, along with its compliance with the conditions of the existing consent, are conducted in the applicant's favour in terms of section 165ZJ(1).

The expiry date of the existing consent is 2024, along with over 250 marine farms located in the Marlborough Sounds.

As there will be a large bottleneck of applications to the Marlborough District Council around this time, the applicant has requested that if the consent is granted, then the commencement date of the new consent could be delayed for 3 years until 2023.

The applicant is aware of the impending bottleneck and this is the reason for submitting the application prior to the expiry date. It is believed this early submission will assist the Marlborough District Council processing of applications, availability of specialists to complete appropriate reports and be timely for submitters.

The applicant seeks a 20-year term, commencing in 2023 and expiring in 2043.

The site dimensions are as per the layout plans attached. The application includes 9 long lines, each being approximately 110 metres long.

There are currently 5 lines installed and operating at the site that grow Pacific oysters.

The site layout is attached to the application.

The structures will be redeveloped to ensure that they are in accordance with the site layout.

Wairangi Bay Marine Farms Limited's Director, Ron Whiteley, is Christchurch based and has had interests in the aquaculture industry since 1996. Wairangi Bay Marine Farms has held the consent for 8280 since 2003.

The applicant's farm is now managed by Marlborough Oysters Ltd (Marlborough Oysters). Marlborough Oysters has been established by Aaron and Debbie Pannell to grow juvenile oysters to a size suitable for transportation to other areas for on-growing, in a joint venture with Moana NZ Ltd (MNZ), (a fully Maori owned company which takes a uniquely long term view in all their operations) which then grows the oysters to market size in Northland and the Coromandel. This is further explained in the ‘operation' section below.

Aaron Pannell has been involved in the marine farming industry for the past 28 years, including employment in various operational and research roles at Marlborough Mussel Company Ltd, Aqua King Ltd and Sanford Ltd. Through these roles Aaron has developed considerable knowledge and experience of the mussel and oyster industries, as well as the Croisilles Harbour area.

The company employs six full time staff.

The farm is managed in accordance with the A+ Sustainable Management Framework for Pacific Oysters which was launched in 2015 and replaces the New Zealand Oyster Industry Code of Practice.

The A+ programme defines expected industry best management practices, and includes a cycle of continuous reporting, review, and improvement across a range of objectives, towards:

• Maintaining healthy ecosystems

• Protecting our aquatic environment

• Managing waste responsibly

• Using resources efficiently

• Safe and ethical seafood

• Respecting iwi values

• Respect for our communities

220473 Wairangi Bay Aquaculture Limited Marine Farm 8504, Wairangi Bay, Croisilles Harbour Wairangi Bay Aquaculture Limited has applied to renew the existing resource consent U060013 (Block A) for marine farm site 8504 (total 1.8750ha) for the purpose of farming Greenshell mussels (Perna canaliculus), and Pacific oyster (Carassostrea gigas) using conventional longline methods including oyster farming methods (refer attached layout diagrams illustrating the site.)

U060013 was granted in June 2006 and expires 1 April 2026.

MLB910379 was the original coastal permit for a 3.75 ha marine farm at Wairangi Bay, Croisilles Harbour. This application was received in September 1991, and was granted on the 7th of April 1992.

Two fisheries permits—MPE066 and MPE239—were also introduced over the site which created a division within the farm. The division allowed for the farms to be referred to as Block A and Block B, reflecting the joint ownership—

• Block A: MPE239—Transfer of permit to Wairangi Bay Aquaculture Limited that was registered to this farm on the 27th February 2001. Farm number 8504

• Block B: MPE066 – Transfer of permit to Croisilles Marine Farm Limited that was registered to this farm on the 22nd of October 2002. Farm number 8276

As MLB910379, MPE239 and MPE066 all expired on the 7th of April 2006; an application to replace these permits was made— U060013—on the 5th of January 2006. The coastal permit which the application replaced incorporated both fisheries permits (MPE239 and MPE066) under the one coastal permit. This new consent U060013 was approved on the 14th of June 2006.

The Aquaculture Law Reform (Repeals and Transitional Provisions) Act 2004 called for all marine farms that were offsite, to complete a section 53 application to amend the authorised space. Block B (8276) completed this application on the 24th October 2006 and was approved by council on the 8th February 2008 as per the plan below. Block A (8504) made no such application.

UO60013 incorporates the two farms, 8504 and 8276. This application is to renew consent for 8504 and to realign its position to sit alongside the revalidated 8276 as per the application site plan.

The application is for a continuation of the activities currently consented at the site. No changes to the activities are proposed.

The site lies within the boundary of the CMZ2, an area in which marine farming activity is a discretionary activity. The existing consent is a restricted discretionary activity. However due to the proposed realignment required, 8504 is assessed as a non-complying activity in the current Marlborough Sounds Resource Management Plan.

As this is a ‘like for like' application by an existing permit holder, the application should be processed under section 165ZH for the RMA. The applicant's adherence to the industry codes of practice, and its commitment to environmental programmes and activities, along with its compliance with the conditions of the existing consent, are conducted in the applicant's favour in terms of section 165ZJ(1).

The expiry date of the existing consent is 2024, along with over 250 marine farms located in the Marlborough Sounds.

As there will be a large bottleneck of applications to the Marlborough District Council around this time, the applicant has requested that if the consent is granted, then the commencement date of the new consent could be delayed for 3 years until 2023.

The applicant is aware of the impending bottleneck and this is the reason for submitting the application prior to the expiry date. It is believed this early submission will assist the Marlborough District Council processing of applications, availability of specialists to complete appropriate reports and be timely for submitters.

The applicant seeks a 20-year term, commencing in 2023 and expiring in 2043.

The site dimensions are as per the layout plans attached. The application includes 7 long lines, each being approximately 100 metres long.

There are currently 7 lines installed and operating at the site that grow Pacific oysters.

The site layout is attached to the application.

The structures will be redeveloped to ensure that they are in accordance with the site layout.
