Documents have revealed the country's biggest salmon-farming company dumps 1000 tonnes of dead fish in the Blenheim landfill each year. New Zealand King Salmon is also working out what to do with 2000 tonnes of fish faeces it's planning to collect from the sea floor. RNZ has been shown the company's application this month for $116,000 of government funding from the Waste Minimisation Fund.
