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.

    I do support aquaculture if conducted in a sustainable & eco friendly way,but Tassal appear to not be conducting their business in a correct manner.

    I attended a session about fish farming at Dennes Point this past summer (I won property on Bruny Island but spend most of the year in Brisbane with my mother at present). I was horrified at what ocean salmon farming does to our oceans and our coast. NO WAY do we want to see more fish farms – unless they are put on land, as most civilised nations are now doing. We’re living in the dark ages – PLEASE STOP any so-called ‘progress’ on salmon farming in our oceans. Thank you.

    Supporting Nick & Starlo 100%. Wish I could be there but I’m in Melbourne and can’t get there. I’ve stopped buying Tassal Salmon. They also need to be made accountable for the destruction they’ve caused. Good luck on Sunday 18th June!

    Thank you people for standing up and being loud and counted. Wish I could be there with you all. Companies do not exist within a vacuum and need to respect the greater good for all and not just the bottom line. Thanks again!!

    I absolutely endorse this campaign to stop Tassal spreading its fake fish farms and more so to stop this kind of fish farming all together. What saddens me is that we the people are not heard without ‘famous’ or well known citizens. This informs me that the majority of concerned citizens need those in society who have status and notoriety to stand along with the unknown aka the rest of us who campaign tirelessly for the justice of all sentient beings and the earth to be handled with skilled care.
