Submission: Draft Tasmanian Salmon Industry Plan

by Eloise Carr

The Draft Tasmanian Salmon Industry Plan has been developed in the absence of a range of up-to-date Government policies and legislation. Relevant legislation is listed for near- and medium-term review and there is a complete absence of other key government policies.

The Tasmanian Government continues to prioritise the interests of the industry over good governance, ecosystem health, and the prosperity of Tasmanian communities. It should instead follow the recommendations of the Parliamentary Inquiry into Fin Fish Farming and establish a new marine management framework, with which the Salmon Plan should be aligned.
