Sanford says an upgrade of its salmon farm at Stewart Island will see production increase from 1900 tonnes to more than 3000 tonnes of salmon peryear.

The seafood company says the $7 million upgrade, which is now complete, will mean the usual nine-month processing season at its factory in Bluff will be extended by 1.5 months.
