Rosalie Woodruff MP | Greens Environment spokesperson

Under questioning from the Greens in Parliament today, the Minister for Primary Industries, Guy Barnett, refused to release the resignation letter of two key scientists from the Marine Farming Review Panel. Their resignation letter was sent just after the Storm Bay fish farm expansion was recommended for approval.

The Storm Bay sea-grab by Huon Aquaculture, Tassal and Petuna will see 19 million square metres of public waters privatised. Tassal is planning a new lease site with 64 pens west of Wedge Island, with Petuna moving in alongside Betsy Island and Huon Aquaculture expanding off North Bruny Island.

The Storm Bay salmon industry expansion is the equivalent to 1,138 Sydney Cricket Grounds.
