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 will support anyone who is prepared to stand up against this avarice. Stripping our oceans bare and polluting them with guano and plastic bags and every other careless thought is plain stupid.

    Great to see Nick and Starlo supporting Tassie and its environment. I admire Nick as a player but I am really impressed he is a green guy as well!

    This over fishing is madness. It’s 2017 people, not 1817!?

    Farm your fish but do it lawfully and in a manner that fits in with the environment.

    After visiting Tasmania last month, we learned first hand about the dead zones around the salmon farms. Well done, Nick and Starlo for supporting #FloatMo. We can not have an industrial fish farm that is bad for our marine environment, bad for fishing, bad for tourism and an absolute death sentence for our endangered whales.
