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 have stopped buying farmed salmon because of the damage they are doing to sea beds and also the dyes and colouring they add to the fishes food to make them look redder ,not a healthy practice .

    Just what exactly will it take to make the dollar signs disappear out of pollies eyes when it comes to unique environments. Its not worth the risk to continue the way that is currently in vogue. Will they wait till its too late and then say, ’Woops, We were wrong. Sorry about that"

    Good on you both for taking a stand against these mega corporations who think they can do what they like !! We have to stop them ruining our natural environment if we don’t the future generations are sadly going to pay the price !! Thank you to everyone who has these same thoughts and values !!

    We need to stand up now before it is too late. It is much easier to prevent damage than to try to repair it.

    Good on you both and everyone who joins you on 18 June and beyond! How can we teach companies the meaning- and the consequences, of the word ‘greed’!?

    Good on Steve and Nick for joining the chorus of people saying the fish farms could prove to be a disaster, unless proper regulations and compliance are in place. It is about time the environment and all who depend on it, are given precedence over mega dollars.
