2016 Seabird Interactions and Mitigation Efforts in Hawaii Longline Fisheries
An annual review of seabird interactions and mitigation efforts in the Hawaiʻi shallow-set and deep-set fisheries.
The NOAA Fisheries Pacific Islands Regional Office attempts to reduce, as practicable, interactions between Hawaii pelagic longline fishing operations and seabirds. NOAA Fisheries monitors the fisheries to determine the effectiveness of management measures implemented to reduce interactions and the severity of interactions. NOAA Fisheries documents interactions and mitigation efforts aboard vessels at sea, and reports annually on fishing effort, seabird interactions, and mitigation research.
