Abstract

The ‘Hook Pod’ is proposed for review against criteria for assessing and recommending as best practice seabird bycatch mitigation in pelagic longline fisheries. The Advisory Committee has adopted the six best practice seabird bycatch mitigation criteria developed by the Seabird Bycatch Working Group for assessing and recommending best practice advice on seabird bycatch mitigation measures. An assessment of the Hook Pod is provided against these criteria.
