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.

    It’s never acceptable to ruin the environment and endanger wildlife, so a big shout out to Starlo and Nick for all they are doing to prevent it. Best of luck guys, go get ’em!

    We cannot have marine dead zones. Care and sensitivity towards the ocean needs to be given to ensure a sustainable industry that exists side by side with the various marine species.

    Internatiinal Scientist and environmental supporter Dr. David Suzuki once dived below a salmon farm holding a 5m long stick. Why? He wanted to measure the depth of salmon excrement below the pens on the ocean floor. He was unable to make contact with the original ocean floor and described the environment as a toxic anaerobic wasteland devoid of life.

    Tassal needs to develop a way to manage the shit that it produces for this to be viable.

    It seems Tassal is ignoring common sense and decency, and I support everything that can be done to pull them into line. Peter C.
