Regional Development Minister Shane Jones is keen to see iwi from the top of the South Island increase their stake in the region’s aquaculture industry.

Mr Jones met yesterday with Te Tau Ihu leaders including Ngāti Toa’s Sir Matiu Rei who wants to put a salmon farm in the Marlborough Sounds.

Support for aquaculture is a key feature of the coalition agreement, and he encouraged them to work up a proposal.

There could be legal challenges, based on previous developments, but he’s keen to see them prevail.

"Why is it that high income people are allowed to fight for aesthetic values and natural character, thus denying industry the opportunity to create jobs and boost exports, and the only people who really gain from these rants to protect natural character are the privileged few who own enormously large dwellings and residences in the Marlborough Sounds. i will put the kaupapa of jobs and industry over their narrow interests any time of the day," Mr Jones says.
