Resilience Report and the Neiden-Ponoi Collaborative Management Plans,

continue with the extended funding from Nordic Council of Ministers and
the United Nations University to disseminate and implement the
collaborative management steps for the Atlantic Salmon. Several workshops
will be held in the wilderness communities on Kola Peninsula about Ponoi
