Overview

To continue the electronic monitoring of the snapper and bluenose bottom longline fisheries in FMA1 for seabird captures (particular focus is for black petrel captures).

Commercial fishers and quota owners, together with the Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI), the Department of Conservation (DOC), and the Black Petrel Working Group (BPWG) propose to further develop electronic monitoring (EM) of seabird captures in a proof of concept project in 2017-18, a continuation of the work undertaken in 2016-17.

The overall purpose of the wider proof of concept project is: ‘to assess the effectiveness of EM relative to human observation in detecting and recording seabird bycatch to species level.’ Specifically this project aims to improve the accuracy of the estimates of total captures, and capture rates, of seabirds (particularly black petrel and flesh-footed shearwater) in FMA 1 BLL fisheries.
