Aquaculture

A local salmon rearing and tourism venture park required an assessment of the effects of its proposal on the local river environment.

Envirolink, in association with other specialists was able to assess and provide the necessary information to successfully obtain the necessary resource consents.

We are now engaged in the ongoing environmental monitoring of the venture.

Marlborough Shellfish Quality Programme (MSQP) has recently awarded us in conjunction with iQuest Ltd the contract to monitor rainfall and flows to enable them to manage their mussel harvesting.

This has involved establishing a network of raingauges and a river flow station linked to iQuest’s Global Data Network the output from which determines safe harvesting conditions at the various locations in the Sounds.

As part of the programme we have also established a water quality buoy in the Golden Bay shellfish area.
