Convention for the Conservation of Salmon in the North Atlantic Ocean

Published October 1, 1983

The EU Commission’s fisheries website explains this convention as dealing with “the conservation, restoration, enhancement and rational management of wild salmon stocks subject to the Convention, taking into account the best scientific evidence available to it. The Convention applies to the wild salmon stocks which migrate beyond areas of fisheries jurisdiction of coastal States of the Atlantic Ocean north of 36°N latitude throughout their migratory range. NASCO is therefore responsible for the regulation of the fishing activity of wild salmon at sea throughout the North Atlantic. It also deals with other relevant questions in respect of the conservation of the wild salmon stocks.” It was signed on March 2, 1982 and entered into force on October 1, 1983.
