NEW ZEALAND - The government has agreed to a partial uplifting of the marine farming moratorium to allow what is potentially the world's largest aquaculture venture to apply for resource consents. Pegasus Bay Aquaculture is planning to set up a 2600ha marine farm a few kilometres off the coast from Canterbury but its application was caught by the government moratorium struck two years ago.
