Overview

Overall Research Objective:

To inform seabird risk assessment and risk management responses for seabird bycatch in different trawl fisheries.


Specific Research Objectives:

1. To improve estimates of cryptic mortality for input to the SEFRA method by attaching seabird corpse catchers to the warps of a deepwater vessel targeting squid and an inshore vessel targeting snapper to increase the probability that a seabird killed on a warp will be retained until hauling.
2. These observations will then be used to create an estimate of the number of unobservable captures that occur; this will be compared with observed captures to work out the cryptic multiplier scalar for use in the multi-species seabird SEFRA.
