The Macallan Estate puts salmon conservation at its core through the unveiling of new sculpture

Written by: | Posted on: | Category:

A new sculpture designed to raise global awareness of salmon conservation has been unveiled in Speyside.

The 300 mirrored glass fish went on display at The Macallan Estate on Saturday to coincide with the official opening of the salmon fishing season on the River Spey.

The Salmon School art installation, created by renowned American artist, Joseph Rossano in collaboration with glass artists around the world, has been suspended in the air to replicate the movement of a school of wild salmon.

It forms the latest development in the estate’s partnership with The Atlantic Salmon Trust, which supports vital conservation work in the River Spey.
