NSPA/MSA Dinner

The Northumberland Salmon Protection Agency (NSPA) and the Miramichi Salmon Association (MSA) held their joint Conservation Dinner on Thursday March 28th, 2019 at the Rodd Miramichi. Over 150 people attended the 21st annual Dinner, which included the presentation of the NSPA’s ‘Friend of the River Award’ to Ashley Hallihan. This prestigious award recognizes individuals and/or companies that have made significant and long-standing contributions to the ongoing effort to conserve the Miramichi River’s iconic, yet seriously threatened, wild Atlantic salmon population. For 17 years, Ashley has been a high school Mathematics and Environmental Science teacher. In addition, he is also an avid angler, occasional guide and the coordinator of the fly-fishing clubs at both Miramichi Valley and Blackville High. The NSPA/MSA would like to thank Ashley for his long-standing support of the MSA and the NSPA as well as all those in attendance at the dinner for their ongoing support and commitment to the conservation of our Miramichi salmon.
