Genetic Engineering

In September 2004, the Council formally decided that no Genetic Engineering field trials would be approved for the Queenstown Lakes District.

There were many reasons for this decision.  First of all the Council is committed to looking after our outstanding natural environment and also protecting the economic stability of the growing wine and tourism industry.
