On Thursday, Auckland Council and local iwi unveiled their unique “weapons on a rope” which have been barged in to improve water quality in a new public space opening on the city’s waterfront. Mussels are being heralded as a saviour for downtown Auckland, with 38 laden ropes stretching over half a kilometre in the harbour.
