Salmon farm in Tasmania.

There's been plenty of talk about Tasmania's salmon farming industry lately. Award-winning author Richard Flanagan's latest book Toxic makes a number of alarming claims about the industry's impact on Tasmania's marine ecosystems. So where can we turn to if we're concerned about eating salmon farmed in Tasmania? In this show, James speaks to Adrian Meder from the Australian Marine Conservation Society about the GoodFish guide, which rates Australian seafood on its sustainability. He says there are a number of great Australian alternatives we can try.
