RESTORING WILD ATLANTIC SALMON AND THEIR ENVIRONMENT

Wild Atlantic salmon are a keystone species in crisis, having declined by 70% in the last 25 years. The population in Great Britain is now  endangered.

We’re on a mission to restore wild Atlantic salmon and the environment they depend on.

PROJECT LAXFORD

The story of the first Core River partnership, a landscape-scale habitat restoration project with state-of-the-art fish monitoring to benefit wild Atlantic salmon and their environment.

PROJECT DEVERON

The second Core River partnership – a long-term, catchment-scale restoration programme on one of Scotland’s most famous salmon rivers.

SAVE THE SPRING

A 20-year partnership programme on the River Dee to restore and futureproof the upper catchment, heartland of the river’s spring-run wild Atlantic salmon. The initiative also proposes to employ innovative wild fish repopulation methods.

WEST COAST TRACKING PROJECT

A unique study that aims to advance our understanding of the marine and near-coastal migratory distribution of wild Atlantic salmon on the West Coast of Scotland and how better to protect them.

MORAY FIRTH TRACKING PROJECT

A groundbreaking research project across seven iconic river systems on Scotland’s East Coast, improving our understanding of the impacts affecting migrating juvenile salmon and informing management strategies.

Help us restore wild Atlantic salmon and together we can give them a thriving future.
