Overall Objective:
Provide a seasonally and spatially explicit southern hemisphere risk assessment (i.e., including fisheries occurring outside New Zealand waters, in ABNJ (areas beyond national jurisdiction) with other countries EEZ (exclusive economic zone) of direct commercial fisheries-related risk to seabird populations breeding in New Zealand.
Specific Objectives:
1. To evaluate relative the overlap of New Zealand seabird populations with commercial fisheries at a southern hemisphere scale applying a seasonally-disaggregated spatial overlap approach (i.e., accessing global seabird spatio-temporal distribution data and compiling comprehensive global fisheries effort databases) for different categories of fishing effort estimated under project PRO2013-11 and from explicit sources of fisheries effort data.

2. Apply estimates of population APF (from the updated New Zealand-EEZ seabird risk assessment, including uncertainty) and species- or group-specific estimates of seabird Vulnerability (i.e., as estimated in the updated New Zealand-EEZ seabird risk assessment, modified to the extent possible by data indicative of relative seabird bycatch rates in comparable fishing effort inside vs. outside the New Zealand EEZ, including uncertainty) to estimate global fisheries risk for New Zealand seabird populations.

3. For each New Zealand seabird population, estimate what proportion of southern hemisphere fisheries risk is attributable to mortalities occurring inside vs. outside the NZ-EEZ, and what proportion is likely to be unaccounted for in the analysis (e.g., due to incomplete southern hemisphere fisheries data or risk from IUU fishing).

4. For that portion of species risk outside the New Zealand-EEZ, summarise the source of that risk to the extent possible, for example by RFMO (or other relevant management agency), and by fishery group, geographic area, season, vessel size, and other relevant categories.
