Thank You

We would like to thank all of the speakers and audience members for being flexible with the scheduling changes that were needed to complete the 2024 Atlantic Salmon Ecosystems Forum. We would also like to thank our keynote and invited speakers Chief Hugh Akagi, Danielle Frechette (filled in for Carole-Anne Gillis), Kurt Samways, and Bian Cluer; and our sponsors The Nature Conservancy and the Atlantic Salmon Federation. We look forward to seeing you all at the next Forum in 2026.

- The ASEF Steering Committee


The Atlantic Salmon Ecosystems Forum (ASEF) began in 2002 as the biennial 'Maine Atlantic Salmon Technical Advisory Committee Research Forum.' In recent years, the focus of the meeting has shifted somewhat in response to evolving research priorities and management needs to improve our understanding of the ecosystem processes that influence riverine, estuarine, and marine habitats. This holistic approach enhances our understanding of multi-species interactions by generating novel insights into the multiplicity of factors affecting diadromous species survival, population dynamics, ecosystem structure and function from headwaters to the ocean.

We hope to attract a diverse audience interested in engaging in meaningful discussions pertaining to the past, present, and future of diadromous species science, management, conservation and restoration, with an emphasis on re-establishing lost biological, physical, and social connections between and among humans, habitats, and fish.
