Longer term if this goes ahead, we will see Tassal shift into Mercury passage and the shell fish leases used for fin fish farming with the resulting pollution. Tassal need to understand that their reputation and sales are at risk with a move to the East Coast and the public backlash and ongoing scrutiny of their business.
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.Endorse
