Wild Atlantic salmon populations are in crisis, having declined by 70% in the last 25 years.

Our mission is simple – to halt and reverse the salmon crisis by providing the best scientific evidence to inform policy and management, and by demonstrating long-term restoration on our pioneering Core Rivers programme.

Our vision is for a future where Atlantic salmon don’t just survive, but thrive.

Transforming Science into Action


Wild Atlantic salmon are in crisis, with a decline of 70% in just 25 years.

We will not sit idly by and watch the demise of this threatened species. Our goal is to discover exactly what is responsible for this catastrophic decline and catalyse the actions needed to reverse it.

By bringing together the wealth of information on salmon & their environment, we implement ground-breaking and innovative research to get the evidence policymakers and salmon managers need.
