Message from the
Atlantic Salmon Federation
Welcome to the Atlantic Salmon Federation’s
Annual Toronto Dinner. We are working hard to
conserve and restore wild Atlantic salmon runs to
abundance. Here are some of the highlights.
IMPROVED RUNS! The 2010 Atlantic salmon
runs to many rivers throughout eastern Canada
broke recent records. Some rivers, especially in
Newfoundland, experienced their best returns in
decades. Grilse returns increased substantially, and
large salmon numbers, despite dismal predictions,
actually increased in many rivers.
The agreement between ASF, the North Atlantic
Salmon Fund (Iceland) and Greenland fishermen to
suspend the commercial fishery of wild Atlantic
salmon on their ocean feeding grounds is certainly a
significant factor in the good runs of large salmon
that are defying scientific predictions. It will continue
until 2013, as long as we can raise the funds to
compensate the fishermen and get them involved in
alternative employment.
ASF is urging Canada to follow international standards
to which our government has agreed in managing the
mixed-stock salmon fishery off Labrador’s coast.
Labrador rivers were among the few in Canada that
had poor salmon runs in 2010. We are urging
government to apply precautionary management by
lowering food fishery allocations and expanding
assessment to ensure that only salmon originating
from healthy river runs are harvested and introducing
selective gear to conserve large spawners.
RESEARCH. Since 1994, ASF has been a leader in
developing the technology and then actually tracking
wild Atlantic salmon on several rivers. We use sonic
telemetry to determine their migration patterns and
survival from freshwater to the head of tide, through
the estuary and across the Gulf of St. Lawrence to
the Strait of Belle Isle. Last year, we worked with
Dalhousie University’s Ocean Tracking Network
(OTN) to track salmon to the Cabot Strait and will
continue tracking research in cooperation with this
program. ASF was instrumental in developing the
OTN under the leadership of Dr. Fred Whoriskey
who led our research programs for 15 years before
becoming Executive Director of the OTN.
We are urging governments to convert salmon
aquaculture from open sea cages to closed
containment to prevent the spread of contaminants,
disease, and parasites and to prevent escapes that lead
to genetic interactions that weaken the wild gene
pool. We are keeping the public informed when
farmed salmon do escape, and are applying pressure
on governments when these incidents occur. In three
incidents during the fall, the industry reported that a
total of 184,000 farmed salmon had escaped in the
Bay of Fundy. At NASCO, ASF works with other
non government organizations to advocate for stricter
measures and better adherence to aquaculture
salmon’s stature with governments and the general
public, ASF has commissioned an independent
analysis that will provide us with the socio-economic
value of wild Atlantic salmon in Canada. This new
information will help us convince the federal
government to invest more in conservation and
restoration of wild Atlantic salmon.
Thank you to our dedicated dinner committee for
organizing this great dinner. Thanks to our guests for
attending and bidding. The proceeds from our dinner
and auction support essential programs and activities
that help us save the species.
Yours in conservation,
Bill Taylor

A fantastic trip for two to the Partaga Buyers
Festival in Havana Cuba November 14-19, 2011.
Trip includes 6 nights double accommodation,

exclusive invitation only event. Each November
in Havana, the House of Partagas holds its annual
buyers week where all the Partagas vendors from
around the world come to the city for a 5 day gala
to celebrate the new offerings that this venerable
cigar house will be releasing for the coming year.
This invitation only event is an extraordinary
window into the world of fine Cuban cigars set
amongst the stunning back drop of Havana and
its upper echelon of society.
The Partagas Buyers Festival is a series of
organized cocktail parties, dinners, and outdoor
activities which take place in and around Havana,
over a 5 day period. The core of this experience
is the enjoyment and appreciation of Cuba’s
finest cigars while being immersed in the
country’s dynamic culture. Music, food and good
wine are major elements of this trip and guests
will have plenty of time to explore this vibrant
city during the day.
The week is bookended by the sublime opening
and closing ceremonies, which each consist of
a cocktail party, dinner, music and lively floor
shows. Special cigars are rolled specifically for the
festival and each activity within the week has its
own cigar tasting. Our base for the trip is one of
Havana's top 5 Star hotels, which is conveniently
located just a short walk to Old Havana as well as
several of Hemmingway's favorite watering holes
and many of the cities best museums and
historic sites.
While the cigar festival is a big part of the week,
Slip Stream’s experience and familiarity with the
city has allowed them to tailor the week so that it
includes several private events that we have set
up exclusively for our guests. They love Havana
and know it intimately.
Their on site team in Havana, oversees all aspects
of this trip, from airport pick up upon arrival to
the mid week private dinner at our unique rooftop villa in downtown Havana.
This wonderfully social event is ideal for a small
group of executives or businesses looking to offer
a once in a lifetime experience to their valued
clients and employees.

LA5 Original Art by Nicholas Coleman

works. Inspired also by the Masters of old, they
include Anders Zorn, Bruno Liljefors, Frank
Tenney Johnson, Carl Rungius, Thomas Moran,
Philip R. Goodwin, the list also includes his
father, Michael Coleman. Coleman uses a
traditional academic approach in his painting,
using gouache and oil. However, he doesn’t like
to label his style as “realism,” as there is a certain
amount of spontaneity and a slight
impressionistic feel to his paintings. Coleman
endeavors to create a connection between his
paintings and the observer by invoking a mood
that the viewer can walk into.
