Yes Please, We Need More King Salmon Farms……..

Once again I am at a loss for words.

Marlborough Sounds

The Marlborough District Council is reported to have withdrawn support for a proposed extension of King Salmon‘s fish farms in the Sounds.

If approved by the Environmental Protection Agency the extra 12 hectares of salmon pens would have brought 1600 new jobs into the area, dramatically increased the supply of a luxury food for overseas markets and met the government’s  much talked about objectives in regional development.

However, despite initial enthusiasm for the project, the District Council now says that there is ‘no certain economic benefit to Marlborough’.    What on earth is going on over there in South Island?     Can’t they count?

I suspect the anti-development hand of some environmentalists and it makes me want to spit because it’s obvious that if there were more salmon in the world I’d get to eat it more often.   And that after all can only be a Good Thing.
