Pacific Islands Regional Plan of Action for Reducing the Incidental Catch of Seabirds in Pelagic Longline Fisheries

by admin last modified Jan 10, 2014 11:12 AM
Available information indicates that seabird interactions with longline vessels operating in tropical and subtropical areas of the western and central Pacific Ocean (WCPO) are very rare, except in the Hawaii-based longline fisheries. A large amount of observer data have been collected from tropical and subtropical Pacific pelagic longline fisheries (15.7 million pelagic longline hooks in 8,786 sets observed from 1995-2005).
