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 have an appalling record of protecting the environment and continually allow self interest to override what is best – may you have great success in your endeavours!

    There’s no point in aquaculture if its practices damage the environment. You have my support Nick and Steve

    Keep up the pressure on TASSAL. I don’t buy their products. They also have the Halal logo certification on their products which is an unfair, UNAUSTRALIAN impost.

    The health of our oceans is vital for continuance of life – including humans seated at the apex of evolution. Dead zones are environmental disasters. There are already too many appearing in our oceans directly attributable from human economic activities. All of us need to be aware that all things are interconnected. What damages one section of the earth and its oceans has ramifications elsewhere, eroding through pollution, the very resources needed to sustainably support continued life evolution on this finite planet.

    No chance to join the flotilla, but wish everyone well, and a successful outcome. Why so many governments and industrial groups still persist, despite all the evidence, in believing that short term profiteering trumps environmental concerns is surely an indictment of the way the world is run. While there was some plausibility in the belief that nature could ALWAYS provide more, those beliefs seemed to have some validity, but now that most of course have realised that we live on a finite planet, all we have to do is disabuse our so-called leaders and their business cronies of their quaint old-fashioned, business-as-usual thinking!!!

    I think Australians have had enough of the environmental degradation and sheer ignorance shown by greed companies. Time to put nature first before it is too late. Endangered whales and the beauty that tourists come to Tasmania for needs to come first.

    Great work guys and hope yours and many others who have the same beliefs make a change to the short sighted self interested parties involved in decimating pristine environments, government included, State and Federal. Support from us both, Bron and Anthony Judge
