[5 November/Otago Daily Times]

Fish and Game New Zealand (FGNZ) is hosting a two-day symposium in Ashburton next weekend to discuss the dramatic decline of wild salmon. FGNZ Councillor Matthew Hall said the population of New Zealand sea salmon is lowest since being introduced in the 1900’s. The symposium will feature speakers providing information on population trends as well as speaking on the impacts of climate change. The Resource Management Acts and relevant politics will also be discussed. It is hoped that through this event potential solutions will come forth.
