Environment Tasmania welcomes Environment Minister’s concerns on Tassal waste dump

Tasmania's peak environment group has welcomed comments made today by new Environment Minister, Elise Archer, that the Government is “not comfortable” with Tassal’s plans to dump waste into Macquarie Harbour, one of Australia’s largest industrial salmon farming regions on Tasmania’s west coast.

“Government and the community have made clear they don’t want waste dumped back into Macquarie Harbour," says Laura Kelly, Strategy Director at Environment Tasmania, "and the pollution levels in Tassal’s waste are too high for it to go through TasWater’s normal discharge processes." 

“It's time for Tassal to take the only responsible option and cut salmon numbers – like all other operators in Macquarie Harbour have already done," Ms Kelly says. 

Environment Tasmania will be lodging an objection to Tassal’s EPBC Referral to the Commonwealth Government, with the public comment period closing this Thursday.

    “I simply had to appreciate you all over again. I am not sure the things that I would’ve accomplished in the absence of the type of points contributed by you concerning this concern. It had been the fearsome case for me personally, but coming across the professional form you resolved the issue made me to weep over happiness. I will be happier for the work and thus pray you know what a great job that you’re getting into educating most people thru your webpage. I am certain you’ve never got to know any of us.”
