Marlborough salmon relocation

​There’s news of the potential moving of salmon leases in New Zealand. Maybe due to global warming, this move may help stock cope with elevated water temperatures.

They probably need to get to cooler waters, or have increased passive water flow to cater for lower DO that comes with warmer waters.

It may be a plus or minus, for the local communities – bring jobs for locals, but may be eye-sore, competing with tourists.

We hope they’ll do due diligence from the biosecurity perspective
