Atlantic salmon from North America
Because the NASCO Framework of Indicators of North American stocks for 2012 (run in January 2013) did not indicate the need for a revised analysis of catch options, no new management advice for 2013 is provided. The most recent multi-year advice for the North American Commission was provided by ICES (2012). In that assessment, no mixed-stock fishery catch options for 2012 to 2015 on 1SW non-maturing and 2SW salmon in North America were consistent with the management objectives defined for this stock complex. Management advice in the form of catch options is only provided by ICES for the non-maturing 1SW and maturing 2SW components, as the maturing 1SW component is not fished outside of home waters.
