Seabird Bycatch Mitigation Factsheets
Simple and inexpensive mitigation measures can be highly successful in reducing seabird bycatch, especially when used in combination.
BirdLife have produced a series of 14 Seabird Bycatch Mitigation Factsheets which describe the range of potential mitigation measures available to reduce seabird bycatch in longline and trawl fisheries. The factsheets assess the effectiveness of each measure, highlight their limitations and strengths, and make best practice recommendations for their effective adoption. They are designed to help decision-makers choose the most appropriate measures for their longline and trawl fisheries. Available in 6 languages.
