• Working internationally with all NASF associated organizations on both sides of the Atlantic
• The current environmentally detrimental farming method of open net pens must be eradicated, and replaced by enclosed systems completely separated from the outside world

SALMON SUMMIT – REYKJAVIK, ICELAND, MARCH 21 – 22, 2018
The 2018 Salmon Summit in Reykjavik, Iceland was an opportunity for those in the salmon conservation community to connect with advocates and industry leaders.
Participants learned about current developments in salmon conservation on both sides of the Atlantic, and engaged with their counterparts to enhance understanding, break down barriers, identify priorities, and create effective strategies and messages for 2018 and beyond. Topics covered included regulatory and science updates, as well as more specific panels on aquaculture, high seas buyouts, and strategy for advocates.
