    Stop Tassal Trashing Our East Coast

    The pristine waters around Okehampton Bay provide vital calving habitat

    Tassal already have their machinery on the ground. They have no planning approvals and no social licence. To protect the coastline we love, our recreational fishing grounds, critical endangered whale calving habitat -- we must act now.

    This is just the thin edge of the wedge. We know the industry want to double in size over the next two decades and we can’t let Okehampton Bay be a new beachhead for their expansion up the East Coast.

    Your donation will help us continue to expose Tassal's illegal activities and explore every avenue to stop their Okehampton Bay plans. 

    Thank you for your support.

    I grew up in Tasmania and am immensely disappointed at a company causing ocean dead zones, not only does this impact the marine life but also would change the entire Eco or water system for miles around, great to see people with a name that many look up to supporting this

    Tasmania is one of the most beautiful and pristine environments on the planet would be a sad day to see it polluted and ruined!

    Support FloatMo

    Australian fishing icon Steve “Starlo” Starling says Tassal’s Okehampton Bay salmon farming proposal is a “disaster waiting to happen” and now AFL star Nick Reiwoldt has joined the campaign too!

    On Sunday 18 June the local Tassie community are holding a huge, peaceful flotilla and rally on Hobart’s waterfront. It's called #FloatMo and it'll send a clear message to our Premier that Tassal’s plan to spread industrial salmon farming up our pristine East Coast must be stopped. Their industrial fish farm would be bad for our precious marine environment, bad for fishing, bad for our tourism brand and terrible for endangered whales.

    If you can make it please RSVP here. Otherwise show your support now by sending a message of support to Nick and Starlo.
