27 April 2005

See also: "NIWA prostitutes itself" and "NIWA say 'fish off":


Presumably, NIWA are now targeting other areas in New Zealand for kingfish farming expansion.   See enclosed links to mass escapes of kingfish in Australia to see why farming kingfish in New Zealand is a recipe for ecological disaster.
