NASF - does a fantastic job!!!


The Atlantic salmon returning to their native rivers need protection from interceptory netting and NASF is determined to give it. NASF raises funds to pay commercial netsmen to stop fishing for Atlantic salmon. This is the only effective, common sense way to restore salmon back to their natural abundance.

In our work we:
- We promote authentic conservation
- We respect historic rights of netsmen
- We pay the netsmen not to fish for salmon
- We help arrange alternative sustainable fishing for the netsmen.

NASF works with netsmen to make the North Atlantic environment a showcase example of bio-diversity and sustainable development.

Since 1989 NASF’s fund raising efforts have raised over 20 million pounds and saved at least 20 million salmon from the fishmonger’s slabs. Conservation of the species is only costing around £1 per fish which is surely a bargain and a win, win, win situation for all – there cannot be a better way! But NASF needs your continued support as most agreements are paid for on a recurring basis.
