EC  requested  ICES  to  provide  scientific  advice  on  management  of  Baltic  Sea  salmon.  This  should include a biological evaluation of old SAP (IBSFC) – especially of why some smaller salmon  populations  did  not  respond  on  measures  taken  under  the  SAP.  It  should  also  provide a  range  of  options  (including  objectives  and  measures)  for  the  future  management plan for salmon. All options should include consideration of environmental interactions, such as habitat use, predation, genetic aspects and contaminants. The recommendations by the BS RAC served as background information.  
Regarding  definitions  the  WKBALSAL  proposes  that  the  future  Baltic  Sea  salmon  management plan shall define a “wild salmon population” as “wild salmon populations are self‐sustaining populations with no or only very limited releases of reared fish”.
New corrected assessment runs were made available to the WK compared to those available to the ordinary assessment work by ADGSALM a month ago. These were now regarded as adequately reflecting the individual river/stock status.
