The Atlantic Salmon Ecosystems Forum
SHARE, DSSRN and NOAA would like to thank everyone who attended the 2014 Atlantic Salmon Ecosystems Forum. We had a great time, and we hope you all did too. The program is available, if you'd like to take a look.
If you have any comments or suggestions, we'd love to hear from you!
Initially the "Maine Atlantic Salmon Technical Advisory Committee Research Forum", the name has evolved to more appropriately reflect growing research and management interest in ecosystem level processes that influence riverine, estuarine, and marine habitats. A holistic approach to research enhances an understanding of multi-species interactions and offers novel insight into the multiplicity of factors affecting salmon survival, population dynamics, the structure and function of salmon ecosystems from headwaters to the ocean. As a result, the 2014 Atlantic Salmon Ecosystems Forum will blend diverse research and management topics, presenting a cohesive overview of contemporary knowledge, management actions, an evaluation of on-the-ground restoration initiatives, and potential paths forward.
