Our objective

The purpose of our work is to enable thousands of extra salmon to reach their spawning rivers every season. The project will allow more than 15,000 extra salmon to reach their rivers every year.

This will give a number of positive effects.

Larger number of wild salmon spawning in the rivers will strengthen the long-term survival of the Atlantic wild salmon.

It will increase the number of visiting anglers and provide valuable income for the local communities,

Together with farming, salmon fishing will strengthen the commercial aspects and long term prosperity for local farmers,

Visiting anglers will have a better opportunities to experience the excitement of catching fish,

Higher numbers of spawning wild salmon will secure and guarantee the vital and necessary genetic purity of wild Atlantic salmon.

River angling will give a far better and more controlled management of the salmon stocks than today. River angling in Norway is managed locally in co-operation with County Authorities with a number of different control measures (bag limits, bait restrictions, closures due to conditions etc.), while bag-net-fishing in the sea (fjords) in Norway is managed by the Directorate for Nature Management with hardly any control mechanisms except from weekly time restrictions.
