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.

    The Right whales’ habitat needs to be preserved for future generations, both human and mammal. I boycott Tassel as much as possible.

    I am not a fisherman, but I do understand the predicament that most of them face. Over-fishing, and lazy, [ or simply bad ], aquacultural enterprises do not do anybody justice, even, in the long term, those practitioners who do not employ good policy, or who are simply dishonest in the way they run their businesses will suffer as a result, as will the weekend fisherfolk and the consumer.


    Bad practices are just that, bad, and should be stopped by whatever authority has the power to do so.

    Good luck in preventing Tassie’s once pristine waters from becoming any more polluted by Tassal, the environmental vandal. Have not bought or eaten Tassal products in 2 years and never will.
