Atlantic Salmon Trust, West Coast Salmon Smolt Tracking
The Atlantic Salmon Trust is an environmental charity whose sole purpose is to understand the decline in salmon and sea trout numbers and advocate the management actions needed to reverse this decline. Acoustic receivers will be deployed to monitor the movement of tagged salmon smolts.
In 2022/23 the marine element of the Nature Restoration Fund was administered by the SMEEF team. This enabled grants to reach more marine focused projects including the Atlantic Salmon Trust.
