Hobart’s Dark Mofo winter festival was hijacked on Sunday by protesters against Tassal’s planned salmon farm at Okehampton Bay.
Dubbed as ‘Float Mo’, people in canoes, on surfboards, jet skis and yachts made a stand against the proposed farm which would hold up to 800,000 fish.
To get a bit of history and perspective on the issue, Brian Carlton talks to Rowan Armitage. Mr Armitage was the original leasee of Okehampton Bay for a salmon farm, before deciding it was an unsuitable location.
“Our determination was that the site is not suitable for having large fin-fish in over summer...,” he says.
