Marine farms to grab four times current area under fast tracked rules

Although it is claimed that only 0.02% of the New Zealand coastline is taken for sea farms, as can be seen from the map, this area overlays some of New Zealand's finest cruising grounds and the grab of sea space proposed by the group will be a quadrupling of the size of sea farms in these cruising grounds and sheltered bays.
