Salmon Tasmania a no show at Maugean Skate Recovery meeting with the public left in the dark.

Media Enquiries

Today, a public communique regarding the Maugean Skate Recovery team has been released a full four months after the last meeting and with very little detail. To make matters worse, The Bob Brown Foundation has been informed on good authority that Salmon Tasmania was not present at the last recovery team meeting.

The Bob Brown Foundation is calling on the Tasmanian Government to ensure that a public communique is put out within one month of the Maugean Skate recovery team meetings and that all absences are recorded and published as part of the public record.

“Salmon Tasmania once again shows they cannot be trusted, this time, not even bothering to show up to the Maugean Skate recovery meeting. The only thing Salmon Tasmania cares about is extracting as much profit as they can out of Macquarie Harbour,” said Alistair Allan, Antarctic and Marine campaigner at the Bob Brown Foundation

“Salmon Tasmania cannot dispute the facts. The federal government conservation advice concluded that salmon farming is a catastrophic impact on the Maugean Skates survival. Fish farms must be removed from Macquarie Harbour immediately.”

“Salmon Tasmania is completely content with sending the Maugean Skate to extinction. So much so, they don’t even see a need to go to the recovery meetings,” said Alistair Allan.
