Re-accession of Iceland to the NASCO Convention

On 23 January 2024, Iceland re-acceded to the NASCO Convention, becoming the eighth contracting Party to NASCO.

Iceland deposited its instrument of ratification of the Convention for the Conservation of Salmon in the North Atlantic Ocean and will now join Canada, Denmark (in respect of the Faroe Islands and Greenland), the European Union, Norway, the Russian Federation, the United Kingdom and the United States as Parties to NASCO.

NASCO’s other seven Parties and the Secretariat welcome Iceland’s return to NASCO and look forward to the valuable contribution Iceland will provide towards our objective to conserve, restore, enhance and rationally manage Atlantic salmon.
