Finance and Administration Coordinator

For the past 65 years, the Miramichi Salmon Association (MSA) has watched over the Miramichi as a champion of conservation on behalf of anglers, outfitters, guides and all others with economic, environmental and recreational interests in the river. Managed by volunteers from Canada, the USA and abroad, as Officers and Directors, the MSA remains cooperative with, but independent of, government or special interest influence. It responds in the end only to its growing conservation membership.
