Supporting the Board
These are challenging times for the wild
Atlantic salmon and there is an urgent need to discover the causes of
the increased mortality in the ocean and the opportunities to address
them. Major new research initatives have been conducted through the Board's SALSEA Programme and ongoing research is planned. Individuals
and companies with an interest in the future of this priceless asset
are invited to participate in this innovative research. If
you would like to contribute to the work of the Board then please do
not hesitate to contact us.
