NT EPA Draft review into seabed mining in the Northern Territory

NT Branch of AMSA submitted comments on the NT EPA Draft review into seabed mining in the Northern Territory on 9 November 2020.

 

In order to appropriately manage our marine estate, it is crucial that threats are minimised or appropriately mitigated. In this case, risks associated with seabed mining are poorly understood with no national mitigation strategy. Seabed mining should not be allowed to undermine the Territory’s largely intact tropical marine and coastal environments. Therefore, AMSA cannot support a lifting of the NT moratorium on seabed mining.
