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

When the UK public saw the pictures of mutilated dolphins, they stood up and made the government ban pair trawling. Pair trawling chews through marine life and increases local over-fishing. It is a huge threat to Australia's recreational fishing and coastal tourism communities.
Tell Senator Anne Ruston she should never have allowed deadly pair trawling and that you will stand up for our marine life!
