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.

    Thanks so much to Nick and Starlo for putting their names to this campaign. I have stopped buying Tassal products. I want Tassie waters to be pristine! I want our whales to have clean clear waters for calving.

    Guys, well done. I live on the other side of the country and have visited Tasmania twice. Salmon and other fin fish farms are a blight on the environment. Particularity in areas of low tidal flow.

    The third island of New Zealand has been earmarked for a similar operation to Tassal’s current and planned salmon farms. The area so singled out is pristine, surrounded by virgin sub-antarctic rain forest, with minimal tidal flow inside an inlet called Port Pegasus on Stewart Island/Rakiura.

    Nick & Starlo I can’t make it as I’m up here in the northern rivers of NSW but you have my complete support in your efforts to protect the pristine condition of Tasmania’s beautiful east coast.
