Summer water temperature update

We monitor water temperatures along with other conditions, in and around our Marlborough Sounds sea farms on a year round basis.

Our aquaculture team are focused on new operational strategies to mitigate the effects of rising water temperatures, especially throughout the summer period.

 

Pelorus- average weekly 5m water temperature – Waitata Farm

 

Queen Charlotte- average weekly 5m water temperature – Otanerau Farm**

 

Tory Channel- average weekly 5m water temperature – Te Pangu Farm

**The previous two years temperatures were taken from Ruakaka sea farm. However, Ruakaka is currently undergoing a fallow period, therefore, data will be captured from Otanearau this season.
