Management advice

ICES recommends that there should be no catch of wild salmon in 2008 in the Gulf of Finland. Fisheries should only be permitted at sites where there is virtually no chance of taking wild salmon from the Gulf of Finland stocks along with reared salmon. To improve selectivity of harvesting, coastal fisheries at sites likely to be on the migration paths of wild salmon  from  Estonian  rivers  should  be  prohibited.  Poaching  occurs  in  these  rivers  and  must  be  stopped.  Fishing  in  rivers and river mouths supporting wild stocks should be prevented.
