Page-turner: Sandra Parker, reference librarian at Blenheim Library, holds the four ring-binders of information about the New Zealand King Salmon proposal to develop nine new marine farms in the Marlborough Sounds

People wanting to research the New Zealand King Salmon application to expand its Marlborough Sounds salmon-farming operations can read the 3000-plus pages of supporting information in the Blenheim library.

Until this week, the information has been available only on the website of the Environmental Protection Authority, which is overseeing the application.

Since the King Salmon application for plan changes and resource consents was advertised on Saturday, hard copies have been available at the Blenheim and Picton libraries, at the Marlborough District Council, the Havelock Information Centre and the authority's head office in Customhouse Quay, Wellington.
