The Atlantic Salmon Federation encourages individuals to become involved in Atlantic salmon conservation, and provides a voice for them at three different levels -

  • Nationally and Internationally in North America and beyond through ASF Headquarters
  • Provincially/Statewide through Regional Councils addressing issues within those jurisdictions
  • In watersheds or portions of watersheds through Affiliate organizations that can have a major impact on the future of those rivers.
