Saving Albatrosses - How to Reduce Seabird Bycatch - Tuna Longline Fisheries - English
This instructional video by the BirdLife International Marine Programme explains how to prevent the death of seabirds behind fishing boats, particularly in longline tuna fisheries on the high seas, and in doing so save albatrosses from extinction. Learn how simple, inexpensive and effective measures can prevent needless deaths of seabirds, and perhaps even increase your fishing yield. While this is mainly aimed at fishermen, it is full off great albatross footage and neatly illustrates how to solve the problem of seabird bycatch in longliners – so please help us share it around, especially to Regional Fisheries Management Organisations and Governmental Fishing Agencies. Thanks to International Seafood Sustainability Foundation for funding to produce this video series.
