Stop the Super Trawler

At 2:34pm on Thursday the world's second largest super trawler docked in Australia, despite having no license to fish in our waters and facing massive community opposition. The mouth of its net stretches 100 meters high and 200m meters wide and is 600m long - that's longer than the length of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. It vacuums up everthing in its way killing dolphins, seals, migratory sea birds and other protected species.

Thanks to thousands of GetUp members who chipped in, this ad which shows the shocking by-catch of a super trawler is in The Australian today, to show Minister for Fisheries Joe Ludwig that Australians will not accept the super trawler's impact on our marine life. Chip in using our tool on the right to help us keep the campaign going until Joe Ludwig makes his decision.
