Save the fishing community of Cove Harbour

Allow the fishing boats to remain at Cove Bay harbour and continue to work as they have done for generations

Why is this important?

Landowner Pralhad Kohle is trying to prevent fishermen at Cove Bay from using their boats, as people in the community have done since the 1790s. He is trying to evict them and has blocked access with boulders. Cove Bay would not be the place that it is without the harbour. Cove was built and founded on fishing and removing the boats would remove the heart of the village. It would take away people's livelihoods and remove a natural resource from future generations. The local community deserve to keep their heritage, and be allowed to enjoy it.

The landlord was ordered by the council to move the boulders and hard core but the legal battle continues. Legal costs are high so if you can please look at our crowdfunding page and donate. The fees are escalating with the fishermen footing the bill.
