For almost three years now, the Fédération québecoise pour le saumon atlantique (FQSA) has been working on an interactive atlas. Here is a sneak peak of the first draft. This atlas is the product of a large project achieved through acquired knowledge with the purpose of geotagging and mapping the pressure points and habitats of Atlantic salmon, including infrastructures and fishing pools in their environment. It is designed to provide useful information to key actors.
