50th Anniversary Online Auction


Our annual online auction is now live! Please use the Online Auction button at the top of the page to access it or type http://auction.atlanticsalmontrust.org into your browser.

The Atlantic Salmon Trust president Earl Percy invites you to bid for a host of unique sporting opportunities.

Salmon carry information about the condition of the oceans right back to the rivers and the drastic decline in salmon numbers is symptomatic of widespread problems thousands of miles away.
We need to understand what is happening and initiate reforms that will save much more than just the Atlantic salmon.

Help us save the salmon and prevent a global ecological tragedy.

The Atlantic Salmon Trust’s 50th Anniversary annual online auction goes live on 14th January and closes on 14th February with over 200 lots including UK and Overseas fishing, stalking and shooting and an eclectic selection of variety lots.

Stalking lots include roebuck in Perthshire, hind stalking lots in Argyll and shooting lots include driven woodcock shooting for a team of guns in Pembrokeshire.

Outstanding fishing lots include Norwegian Salmon fishing, (Guide prices £3,200 and £1,620) Birgham Dub on Tweed (£500), Stobhall on the Tay (£585) and Park on the Dee (£350). There are also some superb trout fishing lots on chalk streams and wild brown trout fishing, and a week fishing lochs on Islay including accommodation (£650).

All lots have been generously donated and the proceeds will allow us continue our vital conservation research.

From Headwater to Headland

Improving smolt survival in rivers and estuaries

Conference:  Tuesday, 14th and Wednesday, 15th March 2017, Berwick-Upon-Tweed

This Conference is being jointly organised by

The Atlantic Salmon Trust and The Tweed Foundation

It will address the key issue of improving salmon and sea trout smolt survival during the critical early stages of their migration, in rivers and in estuaries.

With fewer salmon surviving at sea, it is vital to ensure that as many healthy wild salmon and sea trout smolts as possible leave our rivers. The Conference will explore how this can best be achieved. Leading scientists will outline the results of the latest research into the factors affecting smolts numbers, such as predation, barriers to migration and pollution, in both rivers and inshore waters, and highlight the implications of this for the management of salmon and sea trout. Discussion sessions will focus on identifying practical action that can be taken to reduce mortality and areas where more research is needed.

The Conference will be held in the Guild Hall in the ancient town of Berwick-upon-Tweed, where the Conference Dinner will also take place. There is ample accommodation at a range of prices within walking distance, or a short drive away. These need to be booked directly with the establishment in question.
