Will Hodgman

Premier of Tasmania

6 February 2017

Jeremy Rockliff, Minister for Primary Industries and Water

Salmon farming

There is no greater supporter of Tasmania’s iconic salmon industry than the Hodgman Liberal Government  - it’s an industry that supports more than 5,200 jobs in regional Tasmania and is among the best regulated in the world. 

The Government notes the proceedings brought today by Huon Aquaculture regarding the EPA's biomass decision for Macquarie Harbour made in January 2017.

 As the matter is now subject to legal proceedings it would be inappropriate to comment further at this time.
