Saving Salmo Salar, the King of Fish

The state of the wild Atlantic Salmon

More important than a food source or as a sport fish, the Atlantic salmon is deeply engrained in the culture of every country it has inhabited.
There was a time when communities were reliant on these magnificent fish for their own survival but now the tables have turned and we need to save them from the very real threat of extinction.
In some North American, Norwegian and Scottish rivers the rate of their demise has worsened significantly in the past few years and immediate action needs to be taken to halt this rapid decline.
The North Atlantic Salmon Fund (NASF) strives to find effective practical solutions, where possible, to help conserve stocks by establishing and maintaining commercial fishing agreements to eliminate netting at sea and addressing the management of salmon in freshwater.
