Ngāti Koata Trust Board Members Hori Elkington and Frank Hippolite gave submissions to the Marlborough Salmon Farm Relocations Advisory Panel during their independent hearings at Te Hora Marae in Canvastown on Wednesday 17 May 2017.
Ngāti Koata are opposed to the relocation of six salmon marine farms in the Pelorus and Queen Charlotte Sound’s on environmental and cultural grounds, and the unfair use of Ministerial powers. Ngāti Koata support submissions made by Ngāti Kuia, ka mihi ki ā kōutou ngā uri o Kaikaiāwaro. He tupua! He taniwha!
