“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.
