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.

    We should farm the ocean, but like agriculture​, mistakes will be made.l trust our scientists and fully support “all” their decisions. I don’t Cherry pick just what suits me.and There is nothing sporting about game fishing.it is a very cruel unnecessary practice.

    Goodonya fellas. Nice to see a bit of grass roots sanity regarding environmental matters. So refreshing compared to the usual political stance of “we can’t do that, it might interfere with corporate profits”.

    Stop the Greed of Tassal and the stupidity of the Tasmanian government. We now boycott Tassal products because of the environmental devastation in Macquarie harbour – it is a salmon sewerage farm now. What a disgrace

    Farmed salmon have Zero nutrient value – to be expected when fed ground up chicken feathers bones and other crap + a toxic dye to make it look like real salmon which are now suspect from Fukushima radiation leak

    Thank you for caring. Tassal shouldn’t need to expand as I no longer buy their products, and neither should anyone else until they lift their game and stop destroying the ocean for corporate greed!

    Keep shining the light on Tassal’s plan and their desecration of a beautiful harbour. We have never bought Tassal salmon since the Four Corners exposed their greed and what they are doing.

    Yes I support efforts to protect the environment. Please add my name to your campaign.

    No industry should receive any support if it leaves the environment in a worse state than it was. We don’t get a second chance.

    There must be a balance maintained between big company developments & our environment. Once the balance is tipped no one wins in the long term. As a community, we need to think ahead on what is sustainable. In support of Nick, Starlo & Enironment Tasmania 100%
