Tassals proposed Okehampton Bay farm moved one step closer earlier this week after a move to rezone the area from environment to light industrial was passed by council. More than a thousand people protested against the farm in Hobart in June. The latest is Mr Massie, who has taken up a two week vigil on his boat in the middle of the bay. Theres not many places like this in the world where theyre untouched and unspoiled, the 30-year commercial fisherman said. I welcome Mark Ryan (Tassal CEO) out here for a chat and if we agree on one thing, we will agree the this is a beautiful area. And if he doesnt agree with us, then theres no hope for us. Mr Massie was sup ported on Thursday by small mesh fisher Craig Garland who said his industry wasnt consulted by the Liberal Hodgman government. Theyre ticking-off salmon farms at the expense of our wild fisheries, Mr Garland said. Okehampton Bay will be lost to us for fishing forever. Conservation group Environment Tasmania raised concerns earlier this week the area is used for calving by endangered southern right whales. But Tassals senior manager corporate engagement, Barbara McGregor said the company was confident the farm would be a sustainable success. The Okehampton Bay development is set to be a worldclass venture, she said. She added the company would help rejuvenate depleted wild fish stocks and its 28 pens, which could carry a maxium 800,000 fish, would be seal-proof. Tasmanian fisherman Chris Massieis is spending a fortnight on his boat in Okehampton Bay, Tasmania in protest of a proposed salmon farm which has split public opinion Picture: AAP IMAGES NORTHERN TERRITORY TODAY TERRITORY TODAY NOON YESTERDAY SEVEN-DAY TIDES Full Last 1/4 New First 1/4 AUSTRALIA TODAY O()ect WORLD YESTERDAY TERRITORY YESTERDAY w w w . b o m . o v . a u COASTAL AND LAND WEATHER WARNINGS: 1300 659 214 TROPICAL CYCLONE INFORMATION: 1300 659 211
