Our Surfrider crew returned from King Island, Tasmania with Surfrider Ambassador, Barton Lynch and filmmaker, Matty Hannon where we met with the local community to hear their views on the proposed Tassal fish farms threatening Martha Lavinia Beach surf break. Their views were unanimous – No to fish farms on King Island. Not only do these farms threaten the world famous surf break but the broader community is also extremely concerned about the threat of disease, fish escapes and increased predators in the water that threaten not only their livelihoods but the reasons they choose to live in one of the most beautiful and pristine parts of the world. They fish, dive and surf daily and this would be threatened by an outside company coming in to capitalise on the natural, pristine conditions.
