Garrett questions approval of SA abalone farm

AUSTRALIA - Federal Labor MP Peter Garrett is asking Parliament why a large-scale abalone farm has been approved off Eyre Peninsula&#39;s west coast in South Australia, despite evidence it could harm threatened species.</b> <br><br> South Australia&#39;s Department of Primary Industries and Resources has consented to the aquaculture development near an internationally significant Australian sea lion colony. <br><br> Conservationist Joe Taylor says there is evidence the 15,000 square metres of netting will devastate threatened species. <br><br> <i>Source: abc.net.au</i>
