The Osprey journal teams with US and Canadian conservation groups to expand its wild salmon and steelhead advocacy

For more than 30 years, The Osprey journal has dug its talons into wild Pacific salmon and steelhead advocacy by promoting the best science and policies to restore and conserve native fish populations.

The latest issue of the journal marks the start of a new era for the award-winning publication. Moving forward, The Osprey will be published by a consortium of like-minded conservation organizations: Fly Fishers International, The Conservation Angler, World Salmon Forum, Skeena Wild, Steelhead Society of British Columbia, and Wild Steelhead Coalition, with additional support from Trout Unlimited and The Fly Shop (Redding, California).

“We intend this new partnership to dramatically increase the reach of The Osprey, influencing salmon/steelhead management, conservation/recovery, and public accountability of federal, state, provincial, and local agencies,” says Pete Soverel.

Editorial content will be guided by The Osprey’s management committee and its team of scientific advisors, including Rick Williams, Jack Stanford, Jim Lichatowich, Bill McMillan, and Michael Price.

“We know where the bodies are buried; we’re going to tell you; and encourage change.”

Subscriptions start at $25, with the opportunity to donate more. Anyone interested in subscribing and helping to support wild salmon and steelhead conservation can download the current issue, here.
