Since then we have acquired a reputation as an influential advocate for salmon conservation within the United Kingdom. Traditionally our work has been in the freshwater environment, but more recently we have focused on the lives of wild salmon at sea.
£1.3 million has been raised to support this work.
There are two ways that you can support the Atlantic Salmon Trust Projects:

800 Salmon and 50 sea trout smolts, 358 receivers, 10km of rope and 30 tonnes of moorings, plus a vat of coffee. Today marks the stage where everything is set.
30 smolts tagged today, 820 to go.
Today the Atlantic Salmon Trust’s #themissingsalmonproject research team deployed the final receivers in the Moray Firth Tracking Project. It’s taken just over 2 weeks to position a total of 358 receivers in the rivers Deveron, Spey, Findhorn, Ness, Conon, Oykel and Shin, the inner and outer Moray Firth ready to detect over 850 salmon smolts as they begin their migration to their marine feeding grounds. Listen to lead researcher Dr Matt Newton as he explains why.
The competition is underway ! Our teams are out tagging and Usain Smolt will shortly be tagged and released back into the Spey to undertake his great adventure.
If you would like to ‘Sponsor a Smolt’ and take on Usain Smolt, full details can found here.

PROFITS OF THE AUDIOBOOK AND CD VERSIONS ARE DONATED TO THE AST.
Famous faces have donated their precious time to record extracts from the magnificent story of SALAR THE SALMON (Henry Williamson) & narrated by James Murray in order to let you all know how this iconic species needs your help! All proceeds from the audiobook (amazon audible) will go to @atlanticsalmontrust.
Actor James Murray explains why:
‘Wild Atlantic salmon are a vital part of our marine ecosystem, the canaries of our rivers and oceans. Their future as a species is now at near tipping point and yet very few people are aware of this impending crisis. That needs to change quickly, and awareness is key.’
