NASCO General Meeting 2014

The North Atlantic Salmon Conservatiion Organisation (NASCO) held its 31st Annual General Meeting recently in France. Some of the papers from the meeting are now available online. Of intererst are what appears to be contrasting views regarding the status of Altantic salmon stocks presented in the General Meeting press release see here and the notes from a presentation by the Scottish Government given at the meeting. Notes from that presentation can be seen here

One report talks about low salmon abundance; critically low levels in some areas, and the impact of high levels of marine mortality. The other talks about the increasing numbers of salmon returning to Scottish rivers in recent years. It will be interesting to read how the status of stocks across the range of Atlantic salmon are reported in future years.
