More than 100 people from across 10 different countries (Australia, Switzerland, Germany, France, Belgium, Netherlands, England, Ireland, Canada and the United States) came together over two days at the 2015 Atlantic Salmon Summit in Huningue, France.

Scientists, managers, government officials, industry representatives, NGOs and experts from both sea and fresh water backgrounds, came together to discuss the future of salmon in the Rhine. An excellent atmosphere and rich exchange characterized the symposium. Some of the highlights included :

> an overview of the challenges to be overcome, in both fresh and salt water environments, as well as broader contexts of international cooperation, integrated river management, fishing, climate change, energy production
> presentation of the latest research findings and working group results
> sharing of innovative, real-world case studies

On the afternoon of the final day, a debate took place on the specific agenda for the reopening of the Rhine axis for 2020 to Basel and the long term requirements for a sustainable salmon population (fresh and sea water). This allowed multiple opinions and ideas to be expressed and a common hope for the future to be shared.
