A Greens motion to disallow the fishing quota for the first super trawler to ply Australian waters has been voted down in the Senate.

The motion put forward by Tasmanian Greens Senator Peter Whish-Wilson sought to outlaw the Abel Tasman’s 18,000 tonne quota for jack mackerel and redbait.

Despite Tasmanian Labor senators expressing concerns about the trawler, they did not support the motion and it was voted down 30 votes to 10. Senator Whish-Wilson says it is extremely disappointing.
