The flower of NZ democracy is in full bloom. Most submissions are against, the Council is against, Forest & Bird is against, but it still gets through, almost exactly like a recent consent to build a brothel opposite Sky Tower at the site of a destroyed historic landmark. Rest assured (or deluded) there is no official corruption here. The funniest thing: they will be peddling their salmon as "raised in pristine waters of the Marlborough Sound", while doing everything to make it less pristine.

What a shame that the sounds have salmon farms that spoil their views. More farms only mean more and more money to the owners of the farms and that is what they are about, not a care for the views they destroy. The residents in the Marlborough Sounds are the ones who should have a say as to whether they go ahead or not.

I feel that an appropriate compromise has been achieved here that will be effective in all areas. It won't be as adversely devastating to the environment as it could have been if all nine farms had been approved and not as asthetically disturbing. At the same time, it is economically sound and will provide jobs at a time when they are most needed.
