Management advice for 2007:

ICES recommends that catches should not increase.  In light of the precarious state of the wild stocks in the Gulf of Finland and the very low wild smolt production in recentyears,  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. It is particularly urgent that national conservation programmes to protectwild salmon be enforced around the Gulf of Finland.In addition actions should be taken to stop poaching in Estonian rivers still carrying native wild salmon.
