Volunteer profile – Dave Reddin

June 4, 2014

Meet Dave Reddin, a member of the Central Advisory Committee and NL Advisory Committee.

Reddin is a retired Fisheries & Oceans research scientist and is currently a Scientist Emeritus with Fisheries & Oceans. He lives in a small community just outside of St. John’s. In addition to ASCF, Reddin does volunteer work for the St. John’s Rod and Gun Club and the Mini-Aquarium in Petty Harbour. He also does consulting work on salmonids for the Nunatsiavut Government in Labrador.

Reddin joined the NL Advisory Committee in 2008 and has been a member of the CAC for about four years.

“Since I spent 35 years studying Atlantic salmon for Fisheries & Oceans Canada, the Atlantic Salmon Conservation Foundation seemed like a good fit for me,” said Reddin. “I am interested in Atlantic salmon conservation and in working with local groups to increase habitat and salmon populations.”

“There are lots of good reasons to stay involved with ASCF including intellectual stimulation, helping out to save a wonderful species, and working with others with similar interests. ASCF is the one organization that can provide funding for public groups to become involved in salmon conservation,” said Reddin.

“For anyone interested in wildlife, the ASCF is doing important work towards preserving this stellar species for future generations. So why not get involved?”
