From Mrs Tiggy Pettifer, Fundraising Officer Atlantic Salmon Trust
As fundraising officer for the AST  I so want to tell the grass roots boys about the work that we are trying to achieve. It is not about toffs in tweeds- its about doing something vital in the marine environment!
I want to reach all generations, of all walks of life and anyone who cares about the silver tourists!
Please don’t hesitate to ring or email me with any questions you might have, in the meanwhile if you felt you could, please could you send this out to as many clubs,fisheries and members as possible.
THANK YOU so much for your support

Become a friend of the Atlantic Salmon Trust

The Atlantic Salmon Trust is celebrating its 50th Anniversary in 2017. With a new Chairman Robbie Douglas Miller, a new CEO Sarah Bayley Slater and a re vamped board of directors, the vision is in the marine environment. This is a very driven team , which is greatly needed, our salmon stocks over the last twenty five years has dropped from 8-10 million to 3-4 million. The smolt statistics are even more worrying as 25% were returning, today less than 3% have returned. Never more has this keystone species needed our help.

Why should you help? Please watch our Chairman’s message first. https://youtu.be/S4gKjmsZIWA

The three projects that the AST are targeting:

  1. Acoustic tagging
  2. E dna probes
  3. Aquaculture

We have to get the funding to put these three vital projects into place and by your donation we can make this happen. All you have to do is go to our new website www.atlanticsalmontrust.org and click on friends or fill in the attached form and send it back to us.

The AST’s online auction went live on January 14th and closes on February 14th– please take a look as you may well find something that you really like. By bidding you will be helping fund one of the projects.

On May 25th The AST are holding a Gala dinner at Syon House to raise hopefully over £100,000 for these projects.

If you would like to be involved in the Gala through sponsorship, auction lots, donations or the Presidents Club please contact Tiggy Pettifer fundraiser@atlanticsalmontrust.org

What do you get as a friend?

You will receive a car sticker, a gift voucher for Fishing TV and a newsletter keeping you updated with the progress that we are making and events happening later in the year.

Thank you, united together we can protect wild salmon.
