New photos from the international Symposium on the Salmon in Reykjavik on January 23rd have now been added to the web.
The Symposium was well attended, bringing together leading world experts on the salmon to discuss ways to save the threatened species. The salmon is now classified as endangered after an alarming drop in numbers in the past 25 years.
The experts pledged to increase international cooperation to tackle the problem and found the Six Rivers Conservation Project and research in Iceland to be one of the most promising endeavours to save the wild Atlantic salmon and reverse the trend that threatens the species all over the world.
Below are a few photos.
