Martha Lavinia Declared Endangered Wave
Stand with STW and Partners to Protect Their Coastline
Martha Lavinia is a world class beach break on King Island in Bass Strait. Known for it’s perfect ‘A-frame’ waves formed by swell wrapping around both sides of the island, Tassal has been granted a permit to explore options for a salmon farm operation immediately east of Martha Lavinia Beach. The permit grants exploratory access to an area about 124 square kilometres off Nine Mile Beach, extending up to five and a half kilometres off the coast. The announcement comes after the Government slated the North West Coast and King Island as potential fish farm locations in August.
