On 16.3. and 17.3.2023 the NASF - Salmon-Summit 2023 was held in Reykjavik, Iceland.

Key issue of the summit was the influence of salmon farming industry on wild Atlantic Salmon stocks. Around this topic the development of wild salmon stocks, their actual status and main threats were presented. Numerous alternative methods to salmon farming in open net pens were shown and discussed. A further block of presentations by organizations from around the world showed how public awareness for the sometimes dramatic aberrations at sea could be raised.

The presentations of  Wanderfische ohne Grenzen at the summit you'll find here in  German and in English. 


A total of 39 presentations were highly substantial but also demanding to conceive the complete picture.  The content though seems extremely important for international salmon conservation. We want to invite  the circle of interested persons to take the opportunity to catch up on the content of the summit. The summary is based on screenshots of the presentations with German text added in the German version.
