Management information in the BMIS provides context and rationale for the development of bycatch conservation and management measures (see Regulations). We have devised categories for references, to make searching management information easier. The list will evolve over time.

The management category 'Population-Level Assessments' is considered separately within the BMIS. The remaining management categories are as follows:

  • Bycatch threats & interaction rates
  • Compliance
  • Data availability
  • Data harmonisation
  • E-monitoring
  • Economic analysis
  • Fisheries management performance
  • Implementation & evaluation of mitigation techniques
  • International & national management schemes
  • Policy development and knowledge exchange
  • Post-release mortality
  • Review & planning
  • Shark finning restrictions
  • Species identification
  • Tagging studies
