Views on hatcheries have been changing, as some salmon runs disappear. ASF has taken a forward looking approach to hatcheries.


ASF Policy on Hydro and River Obstructions
River obstructions are a major issue, and such obstructions need to be considered in light of the health of the rivers.


Interceptory Fisheries
Atlantic salmon travel to feeding grounds far from their native rivers. This policy statement provides guidance on how we need to approach the problems created by this extended migration pattern.


Land Use
The agricultural, mining, forestry and roadbuilding methods we use greatly impact wild Atlantic salmon. This policy statement thoughtfully addresses these issues.


Live Release
ASF, through scientific research is convinced that live release is an effective conservation tool.


Privacy Policy
ASF is committed to maintaining the integrity and security of personal information.
