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.

    Thanks guys for getting the message out. I’m sure all Australians would be there with you if they understood the significance of Tassal’s immoral business model.

    Yeh sustainable fishing for all, let’s stop our smorgasbord lifestyles where we want so much to be on hand and only choose a small amount and let the rest go to waste, big companies will do anything to make money and produce goods at any cost, but they must have a market that buys it all.

    Keep our pristine marine areas free from fish farming! These farms distroy native fish species, and environment by using chemicals and antibiotics.

    Just want to say a big thank you for throwing your support behind the cause to stop the spread in industrial salmon fishing and protect our previous environment.

    Thank you for taking a stand for the environment above corporate profit.

    While it is extremely disappointing that the Tasmanian government cannot appreciate that they are the custodians of this very special place and must preserve the environment for all generations to come, it is wonderful to know that individuals such as yourselves sre prepared to use their public profiles to speak for such an important issue..

    Thank you for standing up for Tasmania’s clean and green image, and the environment that we all hold dear. Not only is your principled stance beneficial to the planet, but to industry that depends upon the clean and green image to sell its products overseas and to the rest of Australia. Why should the greed of Tassal, who have already shown they are irresponsible in Macquarie Harbour, be allowed to ruin the environment and the chances of many other producers. Hold firm, hold strong, and good on you.
