Sanford to back marine proposal
New Zealand fishing company Sanford has told the Government it will support a New Zealand and US proposal to create the world's largest marine protected area in the Ross Sea.
The plans could be approved at a meeting in July of the Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources.
But there are conditions attached to Sanford's offer.
Managing director Eric Barratt spoke about the deal on Firstline this morning – watch the video.
