“The wild Atlantic salmon is highly prized by those who fish for it, and by the general public as an indicator of healthy aquatic environments and because of its epic oceanic migrations. NASCO is the inter-governmental organisation devoted to conserving this precious resource. Here you can find out about the salmon's life-cycle, its many values, and the measures being taken internationally to conserve it.” President of NASCO.

  • IYS Symposium Report

    NASCO’s focal event of the International Year of the Salmon in 2019 in the North Atlantic was its Symposium ‘Managing the Atlantic Salmon in a Rapidly Changing Environment – Management Challenges and Possible Responses’. The IYS Symposium Report has now been published online and is available here.
 
  • The face-to-face NASCO Annual Meeting in Edinburgh in June is cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Instead, NASCO's business for 2020 will be conducted by correspondence, video conference and a small meeting in the autumn. Meeting papers will be posted, as usual, here.

    In addition, Annual Progress Reports (APRs) submitted in 2020 will not be reviewed. However, as required by the NASCO Convention, the statistics reported within the APRs must still be submitted. They are available on the website here. The schedule for reviewing APRs will resume as normal in 2021.

 
  • Printable PDF version of NASCO’s State of North Atlantic Salmon Report

    NASCO’s first ever State of North Atlantic Salmon Report was issued in December 2019, towards the end the International Year of the Salmon.

    A printable PDF version of the report is now available here. We hope you like it.
