Oyster Lease Petition


tonyhTue, 11/06/2019 - 3:04pm

Many Cove residents are upset because of the sudden change of farming method being employed by two oyster lease owners in the Cove. These leases haven't been used for many years. We were not given any warning by the Aquaculture and Fisheries people of the intended escalation of farming activity. It seems that some water access ways are being removed and it would seem that the intensity of farming and the effective size of farmed areas will be significantly increased.

A letter has been prepared for the Director General of the Department of Primary Industries - see below.

If you share the concerns expressed in this letter and would like to add your name to a petition to be sent to te DPI, please contact John Murphy email mdspack@bigpond.com
