Let's talk Atlantic Salmon

Over the past decade, Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) has heard a growing sense of urgency and concern from rights holders, Indigenous organizations, partners and stakeholders about the state of wild Atlantic salmon. In response, DFO is seeking your help to develop the Wild Atlantic Salmon Conservation Strategy (WASCS), to restore and rebuild wild Atlantic salmon populations and their habitats. Once complete, the WASCS will align conservation actions with the goal of the Wild Atlantic Salmon Conservation Policy, and adopt its guiding principles throughout its implementation.

Whether you are someone who works in the field of Atlantic salmon conservation, someone who has a stake in conserving wild Atlantic salmon, or someone who cares about the natural biodiversity of Canada, we encourage you to participate in this engagement process. Your perspective is valued!

Visit to provide your feedback on the draft elements of Canada’s first-ever Wild Atlantic Salmon Conservation Strategy.

Deadline for submissions: November 18th, 2022.

Ongoing opportunities for two-way dialogue will also continue, with further engagement activities being planned throughout the development of the WASCS.
