Background Information

The guidance documents provide the reasoning behind the variations, how they relate to other national aquaculture issues, and how they fit with the Proposed Marlborough Environment Plan.

Provision for aquaculture was previously removed from the Proposed Marlborough Environment Plan prior to notification of the substantive portion of the plan with the intention of further reviewing the content. The ‘Recommendations of the Marlborough Aquaculture Review Working Group’ document is a result of the subsequent review.

The report and recommendations from the Marlborough Sounds Salmon Farm Relocation Advisory Panel for the relocation of salmon farms in the Marlborough Sounds is available via the Ministry for Primary Industries website.
