Chairman’s Letter

Dear Friend,

Can you help restore wild Atlantic salmon? The North Atlantic Salmon Fund (NASF) has spearheaded some very successful projects to bring back salmon in US rivers.

Our key focus is removing nets on the high seas and in coastal waters by brokering agreements. We also campaign tirelessly for better regulations and governance and in doing so promote land-based salmon farming, the removal of dams and bolstering spawning stocks.

Now we are into the 5th year of funding an ambitious parr stocking program in the state of Maine. The methodology being used made the river Tyne England’s most prolific salmon river – it’s a fascinating story as told in the Fly Fisherman feature. In the next issue of the magazine (June–July 2016) you can read more about NASF’s support from conservation investment organisation Grassy Creek and the great success of other innovative projects.

Cash is needed in order to continue this vital work and we are currently trying to reach out to the general public in North America. Can you help by donating money or resources in 2016?

Please feel free to make direct enquiries to us; with time ticking by any help you can offer NASF will be much appreciated.

Many thanks,

Orri Vigfússon

NASF Chairman
