It's time for Industrial Fish Farms to clean up their act.
Industrial fish farming has taken away some of Tasmania’s 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. These communities are rightly concerned that Industrial Fish Farms are not adequately regulated to safeguard Tasmania's pristine coast.

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.
