About the Miramichi Salmon Association
Established in 1953 by a small group of conservation minded anglers, the Miramichi Salmon Association is a wild Atlantic salmon conservation group headquartered in South Esk, NB.
Managed by volunteers from Canada, the USA and abroad, as officers and directors, the MSA remains cooperative with, but independent of, government or special interests influence. It responds in the end only to its growing conservation membership.
The net result is a well-managed river system that today, thanks in part to the MSA’s championing of its cause, has more miles of salmon angling water and traditionally holds larger and healthier populations of Atlantic salmon than most salmon rivers in North America. The MSA has an group of members and supporter of 2.5K and an annual operating budget exceeding one million dollars.
