When it comes to salmon farming in Tasmania there's a lot of crap out there. You don't want to have to sift through it to understand which brand is best for your health and for the environment.
That's why we're creating a Sustainable Salmon Guide that will help you make the best choice at the supermarket. But we can't do it without your help so please chip in what you can afford right now.

The federal government has just given its final approval for Tassal’s industrial salmon farm in Okehampton Bay. This is endangered whale calving territory, but they’ve ignored expert advice and given Tassal the go ahead anyway.
It's not just endangered whales that are at risk. Chris Massie is a fisherman that's so angry about this and so passionate about protecting Okehampton Bay, that he's occupying the bay in protest. He'll be out there for two weeks to send a clear message to Tassal and the state and federal governments that the community won’t continue to stand for corrupt processes that rubber stamp industrial development in prime fishing and tourism country and endangered species habitat.
“I’ve caught a lot of flack for standing up against this, but as a commercial fisherman I have a right to question the impacts salmon farming has on our marine environment,” Chris said.
Chris is up against the biggest fisheries company in Australia -- can you show him your support by sharing our image on facebook?

Last week the EPA announced they’re allowing Tassal to put even more salmon in Macquarie Harbour on one crappy condition. We think it’s bullsh*t. Watch the video to find out why.
Chip in and help us take urgent action. With your donation we can step up the fight against unscrupulous fish farmers by:
- Building a powerful alliance with fishers and tourism operators in Macquarie Harbour to stand against Tassal
- Supporting the local community in Okehampton Bay to stop fish farms on the east coast
- Influencing politicians and voters in the lead up to the Tasmanian State Election
Environment Tasmania is completely independent and not-for-profit. Your generous gift is a vital part of our important work.Donate
