ICES advises that when the MSY approach and precautionary considerations are applied, to protect weak stocks from Assessment Unit (AU) 5 there should be zero catch of Atlantic salmon in 2025 from the mixed-stock at-sea fisheries (both commercial and recreational in the offshore and coastal areas).

ICES advises that there should be zero catch in AU 5 rivers with weak Atlantic salmon stocks in 2025.

Coastal fisheries in the Åland Sea and Gulf of Bothnia (subdivisions [SDs] 29N–31) only catch Atlantic salmon from rivers in AUs 1–3 during the spawning migration. As such, ICES considers that if at-sea fishing can be confined to existing coastal fisheries during the spawning migration (from the beginning of May until the end of August) in the Gulf of Bothnia and the Åland Sea, total at-sea catch (both commercial and recreational) in these areas of no more than 40 000 Atlantic salmon could be taken in 2025.
