Owner gives up aquarium arson site


The burnt-out Mapua Aquarium.

TheĀ  owner of the torched Mapua Aquarium has handed the site’s lease back to the Tasman District Council.

Murray Goss said he had decided to relinquish the lease, due to run out next April, and the council had agreed that he did not have to pay out the remainder, as he had lost his source of income when the aquarium was gutted by arson last month.
