Seabird Interactions and Mitigation Efforts in Hawaii Longline Fisheries, Annual Reports
A collection of annual reports documenting seabird interactions and mitigation efforts aboard vessels at sea. This document also details fishing efforts and mitigation research.
The NOAA Fisheries Pacific Islands Regional Office is responsible for minimizing, 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 minimize 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.
