International Atlantic Salmon Research Board

In 2001, NASCO established an International Atlantic Salmon Research Board (IASRB) to promote collaboration and cooperation on research into the causes of marine mortality of Atlantic salmon and the opportunities to counteract this mortality.

The IASRB website hosts:

  • The inventory of Research Relating to Salmon Mortality in the Sea
  • The SALSEA Programme
  • Metadatabase of data and sample collections
  • EU funded research related to Atlantic salmon.
