Accredited NGOs

NGOs Accredited to NASCO

NASCO seeks to be a transparent and inclusive organization. Accredited Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) have observer status. The conditions governing observer status have been relaxed progressively so as to allow increased participation by the NGOs in NASCO’s work in order to benefit from the considerable experience and expertise within the NGO community.

The current Co-Chairs of NASCO’s accredited NGOs are:

  • Paul Knight (Salmon and Trout Association); and
  • Steve Sutton (Atlantic Salmon Federation).
