The ATLANTIC SALMON FEDERATION is working wherever there are Atlantic salmon in North America, out at sea, and internationally.

The Atlantic Salmon has for centuries been named the king of fish for its power and grace. But now it is much more:

  • A symbol of all that is wild and beautiful to millions of people
  • An important part of rural economies along the rivers where it spawns
  • An important bond between the culture of First Nations and all others who share its heritage
  • A species that has drawn an international commitment and determination to see that numbers are restored to historic levels - despite dams, acid rain, bad forestry practices and other abuses of the environment

Whether it is a project on a specific river, or an issue affecting Atlantic salmon throughout their range and across long migration routes, the Atlantic Salmon Federation tells the story and provides the coverage to understand the magnificent wild Atlantic salmon.
