Industrial fish farming has taken away some of Tasmania‚Äôs most pristine waterways. Fecal pollution and large leasing areas destroy the value these waterways once held as habitat for marine life and recreation areas for fishers, boaters and residents. Currently local communities are fighting the expansion of Industrial Fish Farming on Tasmania's East Coast at Oakhampton Bay, Storm Bay, Bruny Island and on the North West Coast at King Island. 

The Tasmanian Conservation Trust needs your help to fight these expansions.

The Tasmanian Conservation Trust knows from experience that people power can stop over-development at the expense of Tasmanians. Some of our most prominent campaigns include Stop the Super Trawler, Fragrance Towers Campaign, the establishment of the Mt Wellington Reserve, and the Tamar Valley Pulp Mill.

A big part of our daily work is helping every-day Tasmanians protect the places they love. If you have concerns about over-development, large or small don't hesitate, contact us today. We find that developers are willing to talk and make some compromises.  You may be able to work with a proponent or council to make a development acceptable, or in some cases defeat it entirely. 

We assist

  •  local communities opposing the expansion of fish farming.

  • residents seeking advice regarding sale and development of publicly owned land

  • landowners concerned about clearing

We can help:

  • protect significant trees that provide habitat

  • negotiate with proponents that threaten  bushland
