Labor stands by the Tasmanian salmon industry

Today, a motion moved by the Greens in the Senate Chamber attacking the Tasmanian Salmon Industry was defeated.
Labor will always stand in support of Tasmania’s primary industries, including the aquaculture industry.
The Salmon Industry is one of the main economic drivers in Tasmania. From humble beginnings just 20 years ago, the Tasmanian salmon industry now generates 5,200 Tasmanian jobs and 5,000 indirect jobs.
“These are jobs in regional Tasmania and most of them are full-time jobs which support thousands of families. This is an industry that has boundless opportunity and potential to support many more Tasmanian families,” Senator Polley said.
Today the Greens tried to move a motion in the Senate which would undermine the Tasmanian Salmon Industry and Tasmania’s clean green image.
“Tasmania is known nationally and globally for its clean, green product and we are proud as a state to produce such high quality Atlantic salmon for people at home and abroad,” Senator Polley said.
“I encourage the entirety of the Australian Parliament and the Australian community to support the industry and support the many Tasmanians who rely on this industry to survive.” Senator Polley said.
Unlike the Greens Labor believes you can have a balance between a sustainable industry, the environment and jobs for people.
