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.

    It’s time that we stop allowing PROFITEERS to completely stuff our beautiful planet for their short-term gains . They get rich . The rest of earthly beings have to suffer for a tiny few rapacious gangsters who rule the world economically .

    ENOUGH !!!

    Go FloatMo!

    I stopped buying Tassal products a few months ago, and now buy IMPORTED Norwegian products. At least I know the Atlantic is clean.
