The Collaboration is an innovative partnership between industry, government and natural resource managers. The partnership provides a framework for collaboration that will support and enhance natural diversity and improve the condition of the D’Entrecasteaux Channel and Huon Estuary. The region’s two salmon farmers – Huon Aquaculture and Tassal – have joined with Kingborough and Huon Valley Councils, TasWater, the Derwent Estuary Program and NRM South to support the D’Entrecasteaux and Huon Collaboration.
The D’Entrecasteaux and Huon waterways are shared-use waterways that host more Tasmanian recreational fishers and boaters than any other in Tasmania, and with thriving commercial operators and growing residential development it is critical that the area’s natural values are managed effectively.
Information sharing // Reporting on waterway condition // Marine debris programs // Habitat and species programs // Collaborating with others // Events // Much more…
We directly support the development of a report card on the condition of the D’Entrecasteaux and Huon waterways, focusing on water quality and sediment health, pollution types and sources, swimming and seafood safety, coastal and marine habitats, and climate. The Collaboration also manages litter and marine debris projects, and works on projects to address stormwater issues, and to improve condition of natural values in the coastal, marine and estuarine environments.
