After reviewing the science and after consultation with Huon Aquaculture, SFFP Tas supports their plan to transfer fish from Storm Bay into Norfolk Bay.
Ken Orr said “We believe this is a necessary bio security measure to ensure the viability of the industry, helping to keep the Tasmania brand strong and ensure the many jobs that are associated with this industry are retained.
We do not wish to see forced redundancies in regional Tasmania which SFFP has constantly warned about, due to poor bio mass and marine environmental standards in Macquarie Harbour.”
SFFP continues to support a properly regulated, transparent salmon industry that respects our marine environment and wild fisheries.
Macquarie Harbour was an avoidable environmental disaster which should never be allowed to be repeated.
