It was - and unfortunately a lot of you have kids, and grand kids that will not live to see fish back in reasonable numbers, in our Canterbury lowland streams.

That's for sure. Does anyone fish Harts Creek or the L2 any more?. On the plains, dairy pillages the lovely artesian pure drinking water below and returns pollution, adding injury to insult. The next petri dish will be the McKenzie basin where Fonterra wants to convert it ALL to dairy farming - that's going to be a shit fight and I'll be out there.

Not just fishing but the general health of ALL waterways at the rate dairying is increasing, and this includes human health. It's hard to imagine all water polluted to the extent that it is dangerous to human life, dead rivers & streams, dead lakes. and you don't get to reverse this easily. No more whitebat, trout salmon , ducks - the list goes on. Drinking water will have to be piped in from elsewhere or huge filtration plants to get the nitrates out. There is a place for dairy farms but not at the concentrated populations were are seeing. As they said on the video, there has to be a way out for dairy farmers.
