As situations, life and death are occasions that in some way are unnegotiable, they are also occasions situations that can only be attributed so many purposes. As occasions, life and death make temporal incongruities present and apparent. In this paper I will describe the different time imageries that are enacted in human-salmon relations with the Tana Atlantic salmon. I will explore several different kinds of relational frameworks, that order the appreciation of time in relations with the Tana salmon, and particularly, how the fishermen’s understandings of temporality interface with that of salmon biologists, working in the service of Norwegian natural resource management institutions. Other salmon-practices take part in the merging of the new salmon time, such as salmon farming and angling.
