Explore Marine Sustainability
through the story of the D’Entrecasteaux Waterway
We go to sea with fishermen who have spent their lives acquiring an intimate knowledge of the Channel.
These characters have experienced the collapse of a commercial wild scallop fishery and initiated an oyster farming industry whose viability is dependent on having clean water.
Watch Sheltered Passage – The Shell Fishers
Duration: 15 minutes.
An important centre of Tasmanian Aboriginal culture, the Channel drew European settlers attracted to its bountiful yet challenging environment.
Lives that were shaped by the waterway have in turn shaped the culture of the communities that have grown up along its shores.
Today, communities along the Channel maintain multi-generational links to their history and are part of the living fabric of indigenous and colonial heritage.
Their stories help us towards a better understanding of current and future challenges to Channel communities.
