Sir David Attenborough Discusses Why We Need to Protect Wild Salmon

In a great video from the Salmon & Trout Conservation, Sir David Attenborough discusses his thoughts on the protection of all wild salmon populations. The video was produced in celebration of the International Year of the Salmon.

Wild salmon stocks have been a subject of concern for many years with fishery biologists and we are beginning to see strong declines in salmon returning to their ancestral breeding rivers and streams.

Salmon are mainly under threat from overfishing, the poorly regulated salmon farming industry, and climate change. We urge you to do some research and get to know the facts behind why we need to protect these important migratory fish!
