Tasmania has beautiful, unspoilt landscape and countryside. Tasmania also has delicious local produce, including farmed salmon.

On Sunday, there was a protest against additional fish farming on our East Coast. It was all very peaceful and friendly, a few speakers, music, media coverage.IMG_1323

There were people on the waterfront, some with placards, some with their dogs.IMG_1300IMG_1326

There were people on the water, also with banners and signs, also with dogs. Fishing trawlers, recreational fishing boats, pleasure boats, yachts, kayaks, jet skis, paddle boards, surfers.IMG_1342IMG_1309IMG_1335

Although this was a local protest on a small island at the bottom of the world, this one placard seems appropriate on a global level.IMG_1321
