Aunan Lodge supports Redd villaksen
Reddvillaksen.no is a non profit organisation funding several important projects to improve the situation for the wild salmon and sea trout in Norway. The last 13 years they have held a fund raising auction in Oslo, where both fishing trips, equipment, artwork and other items go under the hammer.
Redd villaksen also receive donations, and Aunan Lodge has the last two years been inspired by Hembre Gård on the Stjørdalselva and Årøy Gård on the Årøy. They have donated NOK 100 kr per salmon that are returned to the river by their guests. In 2016 a total of 118 salmon were released by guests at Aunan Lodge, and this resulted in a check for NOK 11.800,- being handed over to Redd villaksen. In 2017 this number increased to 149 salmon, and Gøran Telenius, chef at Aunan, presented a check for NOK 14.900,- on the night of the auction.
The total amount raised on the night was around NOK 1,3 million.
