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

  • Thousands of fish live in their own filth in cramped, confined pens. The fish are fed huge amounts of anti biotics to try to prevent diseases because of the disgusting conditions the fish are forced to live in.
  • Factories are for making cars, not for making living organisms. Factories are polluting. Salmon farming is polluting.
  • Fish farming is disgusting.
