ICES advises on the basis of precautionary considerations that catches of wild salmon should be kept to a minimum. To maintain  a  low  bycatch  of  wild  salmon  in  the  coastal  salmon  fisheries,  effort  should  be  reduced  in  these  fisheries.  Additional  measures  to  minimize  catch  of  wild  salmon  in  coastal  fisheries  close  to  the  wild  salmon  rivers  should  be  considered.  Such  measures  could  include  relocation  of  coastal  fisheries  away  from  sites  likely  to  be  on  the  migration  paths  of  Gulf  of  Finland  wild  salmon,  relocating  fisheries  away  from  rivers  and  river  mouths  supporting  wild  stocks,  and protection of wild salmon (from poaching) when they return to rivers. Also, reduction in exploitation in the fishery in the Main Basin needs to be considered as salmon from the Gulf of Finland to a large extent have the Main Basin as their feeding area.
