Dedicated to the Preservation of Wild Steelhead

The Osprey: International Journal of Salmon & Steelhead Conservation

The Osprey: International Journal of Salmon and Steelhead Conservation is a scientific journal published by a consortium of like-minded conservation organizations: The Conservation Angler, Fly Fishers International, World Salmon Forum, Wild Steelhead Coalition, Steelhead Society of British Columbia, and Skeena Wild. The Osprey is governed by an editorial and management committee consisting of partner organizations. A council of internationally prominent scientific advisors provide editorial guidance.

For over 30 years, The Osprey has served as the leading source of information and commentary regarding the management, science and recovery of Pacific steelhead and salmon. The Osprey advocates for the conservation of existing wild steelhead and salmon stocks and recovery of depressed populations. Many challenges lay ahead for wild salmon and steelhead, including the impacts of climate change, population growth, ill-advised dams and hatchery projects.  We are hopeful that with dedicated research, education and advocacy on their behalf, salmon can both recover and thrive in perpetuity.


The Conservation Angler provides both financial and editorial support to The Osprey and our own president, Pete Soverel, serves as the chair and managing director of the editorial and committee ins support of The Osprey’s mission.  To help recover these fish populations, it is crucial that wild fish advocates maintain a resounding and unified voice.


The Osprey depends upon financial support from wild fish advocates, our readers. Without your generous, sustained support, we are out of business. We urgently ask you to please select one of the “donate” icons below and provide a sustaining gift. All donations are restricted strictly for support to The Osprey and none of the funds received are co-mingled with other Conservation Angler funds. Your generous support make possible The Osprey so we can continue to provide information and commentary to the general public, legislators and management agencies/officials about the management, science, and recovery of wild Pacific steelhead and salmon.
