ABSTRACT
The article reports on the issues surrounding the plan for extended fish-farming in Marlborough Sounds, New Zealand. While the plan was aimed as a major economic boost, many locals are rallying to save clean, green New Zealand. The plan was the first to be heard since the government changed the laws relating to aquaculture in a bid to increase the industry's earnings. Under the law, fish-farmers are allowed to bypass local body regulations and go straight to a central regulator.
