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.

    Agree with Nick., Tasmania’s east coast environment and pristine coastal waters are too precious a resource to risk environmental damage which Tassal has already caused.

    Absolutely agree with Nick’ sentiments re this environmentally damaging proposed fish farm on the east coast. Tassal’s track record on the west coast is not good, having significantly impacted the otherwise pristine waters of Macquarie Harbour and now want to extend this to the sill pristine waters of the east coast. Tassal should be required to clean up the mess they’ve already created and demonstrate their environmental stewardship before being given a licence to operate elsewhere. Tasmania’s most valuable resource is its environment. This should take pre eminence over profits.

    Good on you both, Steve and Nick for putting your name to this very worthy cause. Currying favour with political donations has to stop.

    I’m with you guys on this. Tassal needs to know how we, the people and the unborn generations feel about the desecration of our water. I can’t be there but I’m with you in spirit. Keep up the good work. Cheers, strength and peace. Paul J
