Abstract Baited branchlines were set from a tuna longlining vessel using an underwater setting device and their sink patterns compared with those of baited branchlines that were hand‐thrown. Using a paired /‐test at an hypothesised mean difference of 2 m, at a point 100 m astern of the vessel, baited branchlines set using the device were significantly deeper than those that were hand‐thrown. Baited branchlines set using both methods showed a high variation in then‐sink patterns; on some sets… Expand
Sink rate of baited hooks during deployment of a pelagic longline from a New Zealand fishing vessel
Abstract The sink rate of baited hooks during the deployment of a pelagic longline was determined using time depth recorders. This study was undertaken to determine how long baited hooks are withinExpand
Performance assessment of an underwater setting chute to mitigate seabird bycatch in the Hawaii pelagic longline tuna fishery
Abstract Mortality in longline fisheries is one of the most critical global threats to some seabird species. Underwater setting technology may offer an effective and commercially viable solution. TheExpand
Best practices to mitigate seabird bycatch in longline, trawl and gillnet fisheries—efficiency and practical applicability
Growing concerns have been raised about incidental capture of seabirds in various fisheries. Here, studies testing measures to prevent seabird bycatch in longline, trawl and gillnet fisheries areExpand
Modelling the foraging ecology of the flesh-footed shearwater Puffinus carneipes in relation to fisheries and oceanography
Increasing numbers of animal and plant species are under threat, often through human activity. To improve management of these species, it is important to understand the spatio-temporal nature ofExpand
Maximising the survival of bycatch discarded from commercial estuarine fishing gears in NSW
More than 50% of the world’s total marine catch (approximately 81 million tonnes) is harvested using towed fishing gears (i.e. Danish seines, dredges and otter and beam trawls). As for all methods,Expand
Which factors strongly influence the sinking speed of a demersal longline
Sinking speed is one of the main factors affecting the performance of longlines. Demersal and pelagic longlines need to sink quickly, to prevent bycatch of marine animals and bait loss to seabirds.Expand
Estimating Collateral Mortality from Towed Fishing Gear
TLDR
It is proposed that because the mortalities of discards typically are much greater than escapees, the primary focus of efforts to mitigate unaccounted fishing mortalities should concentrate on the rapid, passive, size and species selection of nontarget organisms from the anterior sections of towed gears during fishing.

Comparison of three seabird bycatch avoidance methods in Hawaii-based pelagic longline fisheries
Capture in longline fisheries is a critical threat to most albatross and large petrel species. Blackfooted Phoebastria nigripes and Laysan P. immutabilis albatrosses are the predominant seabird Expand
Review and assessment of mitigation measures to reduce incidental catch of seabirds in longline, trawl and gillnet fisheries
Growing concerns have been raised about incidental capture of seabirds in various types of fisheries. Most attention has been given to bycatches of albatrosses in the longline fisheries of theExpand
Integrated management to address the incidental mortality of seabirds in longline fisheries
Of the myriad of anthropogenic and natural threats to seabirds, one of the most critical global problems is incidental mortality in longline fisheries. Hesitance or failure by fishery managers andExpand

Abstract Studies carried out over the past three decades at Crozet and Kerguelen Islands in the Indian Ocean indicate that wandering albatross Diomedea exulans populations declined markedly, butExpand
Diving depths of albatrosses
Studies of diving in seabirds have mainly been confined to penguins, alcids and cormorants. There are few data on the depths to which other seabirds dive although some species are known to haveExpand
Population dynamics of the wandering albatross (Diomedea exulans) on Macquarie Island and the effects of mortality from longline fishing
TLDR
Mark-recapture analysis shows that the population of wandering albatrosses on Macquarie Island is not closed, and an annual number of longline hooks in the southern hemisphere tuna fishery of 41.6 million is calculated as the ceiling below which the population would begin to recover. Expand
