DFO is considering whether to add wild Atlantic salmon from 104 watersheds along Newfoundland’s South Coast to Canada’s Species at Risk Act (SARA). It’s a move that could hamper grassroots conservation efforts and would automatically close active salmon fisheries from Port aux Basques to the Avalon Peninsula

Join Dr. Steve Sutton and the ASF team for a short presentation on why SARA is a bad fit for south Newfoundland and take part in a moderated discussion:

  • What are the major threats to South Newfoundland Atlantic salmon and how can government, Indigenous organizations, and the conservation community help?
  • How can government, Indigenous organizations, NGO's, anglers, and outfitters work together to improve population assessment in South Newfoundland?
  • What research is needed to fill in knowledge gaps about South Newfoundland salmon?

When: March 4th 7:00 PM Newfoundland Time
