To The Hon Malcolm Turnbull, Prime Minister of Australia.
Welcoming destructive Super Trawlers into Australia is just one of the anti-environment attacks Tony Abbott will be remembered for.
We know you have shown leadership to protect our oceans in the past, working with former Prime Minister John Howard to introduce a network of marine protected areas in Australia’s South East Marine Region. We are asking you to show leadership again and step up to ban all factory trawlers in Australia.
Make Super Trawlers part of Abbott’s legacy, not yours.

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
