Australian Ethical Investment's divestment from Tassal is a slap in the face to the sustainability brand of the Tasmanian farmed salmon industry. It's evidence that investors have no confidence in this severely under-regulated industry.
Minister Rockliff has to step in immediately to restore investor confidence by regulating the salmon industry for long-term environmental conservation, transparency and accountability.

Despite the scathing Four Corners exposé and yesterday's report of significant environmental damage in Macquarie Harbour from the EPA, the government still refuses to do what's needed to protect future jobs in the salmon farming industry.
This morning in State Parliament, the Minister for Primary Industries, Jeremy Rockliff, once again showed his blind industry expansion agenda. What he doesn't understand is that what’s good for the environment, is good for industry.
