Welcome

The Atlantic Salmon Trust was Founded in 1967 in response to growing concerns about over exploitation of wild salmon in the Faroes and Greenland Coastal waters.

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.

This year our major piece of work is The Missing Salmon Project, this comprises of two major components:
1. The Likely Suspects Framework
2. The Missing Salmon Project

£1.3 million has been raised to support this work.


 

There are two ways that you can support the Atlantic Salmon Trust Projects:
1. Make a bid on the Atlantic Salmon Trust online auction: www.astauction.com
2. Make a donation to the Atlantic Salmon Trust or specifically to the Missing Salmon Project.

Current Priorities

As the UK's only charity whose work is devoted exclusively to the conservation of wild Atlantic salmon and sea trout, the AST's focus is on the whole lives of these fish, in both freshwater and marine environments. Our current priority is to find out why and where salmon and sea trout are dying and the AST is directing its focus on the migration of salmonids, and the lower river, coastal and marine environment.
