Did you know that the Atlantic salmon is an important part of the ecology of many rivers in the UK and northern Europe?

Studying the life-cycle of these fascinating fish is an ideal way to introduce young people to many aspects of our environment, and indeed of European geography.

Here you can view and download fact sheets and worksheets suitable for schools projects. Our interactive map is a great way to bring these resources together.

In this section you will also find presentations from previous Atlantic Salmon Trust events, alongside conference notes and workshop details.
