EPA reissues Tassal biomass determinations for Macquarie Harbour

06 June 2017

The EPA Director, Mr Wes Ford, today reissued the biomass determinations provided to Tassal for Macquarie Harbour for the period from 1 June 2017 to 31 May 2018 to avoid any doubt as to the intent of the determinations.

On 5 May, the Director advised Tassal that the draft biomass determinations of 13 tonnes per hectare was to be based on a combined total lease area of 280 hectares for the lease numbers 214, 219 and 266.

This intent was clearly conveyed to Tassal at the time of making the determinations, however in order to make the legal instrument clearer, it has now been re-issued.

A copy of the reissued determinations is available at www.epa.tas.gov.au/regulation/salmon-aquaculture/Macquarie-Harbour
