BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Fishing limits for wild salmon in the Baltic Sea will be unchanged or cut slightly next year, under European proposals published on Friday, which environmentalists say ignore concerns that some sub-species could face extinction.

The European Commission says there should be a year-on-year cut of 11 percent in the allowable catch for "main basin" salmon, referring to most of the salmon in the Baltic, for 2013.

That followed the agreement by European Union ministers for a cut of 51 percent for 2012.
