The responsible

Preserve landscapes

Help us

Our salmonid waters need protection, especially those which are unique in character and of great value for the preservation of genetically unaltered strains of wild fish. From time to time, you will find alerts on this page, asking you to help protect the waters mentioned therein from imminent interventions (construction of hydroelectric power plants, water withdrawals, mining projects).

Take your time and use our alert system. Help save these unique waters for future generations. Even if it's not waters in your immediate area or country, please remember, at some point you too may be glad for the support of others. You can protest in your own words or, if you wish, send letters of protest already prepared to the appropriate authorities. Please bookmark this page and look in from time to time. Let other fishermen know about it and encourage them to participate in the EFFA alert system to keep the lifelines of our landscapes alive.

Many thanks!
