Onshore farming the answer to sustainable salmon, says Shooters and Fishers Party

Off the back of an interview with David Wood, Acting Chief Executive of Petuna Aquaculture this morning, Ken Orr from the Shooters and Fishers Party calls in to Tasmania Talks to weigh in on sustainable salmon farming.

Mr. Orr states the Shooters and Fishers Party believe onshore farming to be the answer.

"We're just asking why the industry is not looking at bringing their farming onshore, where it's much more predictable and much more imaginable," Mr. Orr says.
