Environmental Defenders Office (EDO) welcomes the opportunity to comment on the Department of Nature Resources and Environment Tasmania’s Discussion Paper: Towards a 10-Year Salmon Plan (Discussion Paper). There can be little doubt after the Legislative Council Inquiry Report on Finfish Farming in Tasmania dated May 2022 that community perceptions of the sustainability of the salmon farming industry are deteriorating. This submission addresses the Discussion Paper’s focus areas of Governance and Regulation, and Community Engagement. EDO outlines 2 key steps that must be taken by the Tasmanian Government to ensure the regulation of the industry shifts to achieve more ecologically and socially sustainable practices.
