Lemma 31.2.5. Let $X$ be a locally Noetherian scheme. Let $\mathcal{F}$ be a coherent $\mathcal{O}_ X$-module. Then $\text{Ass}(\mathcal{F}) \cap U$ is finite for every quasi-compact open $U \subset X$.

**Proof.**
This is true because the set of associated primes of a finite module over a Noetherian ring is finite, see Algebra, Lemma 10.63.5. To translate from schemes to algebra use that $U$ is a finite union of affine opens, each of these opens is the spectrum of a Noetherian ring (Properties, Lemma 28.5.2), $\mathcal{F}$ corresponds to a finite module over this ring (Cohomology of Schemes, Lemma 30.9.1), and finally use Lemma 31.2.2.
