Protecting Canada's wild salmon

Salmon are iconic to Atlantic and Pacific coastal and inland waters, connecting communities across the country. Through partnerships and action, we strive to ensure healthy, diverse salmon populations to sustain aquatic ecosystems and balance the needs of Canadians for generations to come.
