SAVING WILD
ATLANTIC SALMON

IN 2018 UK RIVERS RECORDED THE
LOWEST SALMON RETURNS IN HISTORY

To address the current crisis in wild Atlantic salmon stocks the Atlantic Salmon Trust, Salmon & Trout Conservation, Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust, and the Angling Trust with Fish Legal have joined together to form the Missing Salmon Alliance.

The Missing Salmon Alliance (MSA) is fighting to reverse the devastating collapse in wild salmon around the UK. By combining expertise, coordinating activities and advocating effective management solutions we can help the wild Atlantic salmon survive and thrive in our rivers and seas for the next generation.

Please join us for the first Missing Salmon Alliance Forum which will launch our joint plan for action, and address the need for key NGOs to take a collaborative approach to conserving wild Atlantic salmon.

Outlining a programme of work to address the crisis in UK wild Atlantic salmon.
