On 17 October 2019 the Marlborough District Council advised that King Salmon Ltd had applied for resource consent.
King Salmon Ltd were seeking to install and operate a salmon farm or farms in a 1792 hectare site, 3.3km wide by 5.4km long, 6km to 12km north of Cape Lambert, Marlborough.
Submissions were due with the Marlborough District Council by 16 December 2019.
On 16 December 2019 the New Zealand Sport Fishing Council submitted against the resource consent on the basis that adverse environmental changes will impact on many South Island and Wellington based fishers. Also, that the site is a known migration path, there is a risk to mammals and it unknown how effective any mitigation efforts will be in protecting migrating whales.
