The MSA has evolved since 1953 from primarily a conservation advocate group to a nonprofit conservation group whose work focuses on research and field programs. Through partnerships with government organizations and other non-profit groups, the MSA has been
crucial in increasing the amount that is known about Atlantic salmon on this river and assessing the current status of many life stages on this fish on the Miramichi, and providing funding to other important programs that would otherwise not be able to take place.

The Miramichi Salmon Association has professional staff employed to conduct many of the programs to protect and enhance salmon stocks on the Miramichi.

The greatest asset to the organization, however, is the many volunteers that give their time and efforts to raise money, debate issues, and help with programs. We invite MSA members to become actively involved in the organization by participating in an activity that fits their abilities and schedule.

The MSA is a non-profit group that relies heavily on fundraising to run its field programs. There are lots of programs to become involved in where you will have the opportunity to meet people with the common goal of Atlantic salmon conservation.

The MSA is always looking for willing individuals or groups to volunteer and help us with our programs, if you are interested in participating in any of our programs please contact Mark at the MSA office at (506) 622-4000 or ">

Science and field programs typically run from May to November and we guarantee you will see lots of fish!
