Salmon in the Gulf of Finland (Subdivision 32)
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.
