Salmon in the Gulf of Finland (Subdivision 32)
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.
