Keep NW Tasmania Fish Farm Free

Keep NW Tasmania Fish Farm Free

We want an immediate and comprehensive ban on any fish farming in the waters surrounding the pristine North West coast of Tasmania

Why is this important?

If fish farms are established in NW Tasmania's pristine waters then there will be a massive negative impact on our environment, economy and society. Wynyard, Burnie, Sisters Beach, Table Cape to Stanley's economies are based on a clean, green and unspoiled image. If the NW Brand is tainted by its association with industrial fish farming, and the rapidly accelerating negative press and opposition it is generating, then our economy will be severely impacted.

The very reasons that attract visitors and residents to NW Tasmania are diametrically opposed to the industrialisation of our pristine marine environment. Our way of life and quality of life are under threat just so companies and shareholders can make even more money. We reject private corporations & the government making profits off the backs of pristine waters & residents

Reasons for signing

  • I love Tasmania, private corporations & transient governments should not have carte blanche to destroy & pollute for profit what belongs to all of us.
  • To get rid of the environmentally unfriendly fish farms.
  • We no longer have pristine waters in Long Bay, Port Arthur since the fish farms moved back in after 10 years, four years ago. They moved back in, in force. They have destroyed our bays. I would hate for the NW coast to share the same story in the years ahead.
