Efforts by New Zealand King Salmon (NZKS) to win permission to farm 10,000 tonnes of fish in an offshore location reach a key stage later this month when the project, called Blue Endeavour, is examined at a hearing by Marlborough District Council.
The company, which currently has eight relatively sheltered sites in Pelorous Sound, Queen Charlotte Sound and Tory Channel in the north of South Island, wants to site the farm several kilometres from shore in the Cooke Strait that separates NZ’s North and South Islands.

The fishing sectors of Europe and Morocco, united through the Joint Euro-Moroccan Commission of Fisheries Professionals, have been "concerned" after the ruling of the General Court of the EU, which yesterday ruled the annulment of the fishing agreement between the EU and Morocco. The reason, once again and repeating the episode of 2018, is its application in the adjacent waters of the non-autonomous territory of Western Sahara.

The new technical measures are considered "nonsense" for the fishing sector, although for the EU, "this Regulation provides the necessary framework for the application of the CFP and contributes effectively to EU environmental legislation, through its application directly, but mainly by providing the Member States with the necessary instruments to adopt fisheries measures ”.
However, there are shortcomings in the implementation of the Regulation as regards its contribution to the protection of sensitive species and habitats, with some species on the brink of extinction, according to the EU.
The General Court of the European Union will rule this Wednesday if the fisheries and agricultural agreements between the EU and Morocco that include Western Sahara are legal or, as the Polisario Front defends, should be annulled because they are contrary to international law by including a territory pending decolonization.
The sentence, which will be known from 11.00 am and may be appealed by either party within a period of two months and ten days.
