The ASF Roll of Honor is presented annually to individuals who exhibit outstanding commitment to wild Atlantic salmon conservation at the grass-roots level. The award was initiated to provide a means of acknowledging the hard work that is performed on behalf of the Atlantic salmon by the many volunteers within the federation's affiliate network - the so-called unsung heroes who are the life blood of the salmon conservation movement. Nominations are solicited from the federation's regional councils, affiliates and its membership at large. Candidates must be ASF members in good standing.


The Affiliate of the Year award recognizes outstanding leadership and achievement in wild Atlantic salmon conservation within the federation's affiliate structure. The winning organization receives an engraved plaque and a cheque for $500 to be used toward their conservation programs. Only regional council presidents, in consultation with their board of directors, are eligible to submit nominations.
