The southwestern Atlantic Ocean is an important foraging ground throughout the year for several albatross and petrel species. Longline fishing fleets in the region currently pose the main threat for this group of seabirds at sea, and conservation measures are urgently required. We present information on bycatch rates of seabirds in the Brazilian domestic pelagic longline fishery from 2001 to 2007, and review bycatch rates reported for the demersal and pelagic longline fisheries in the… Expand

SEABIRD BYCATCH ON BRAZILIAN PELAGIC LONGLINE FISHERY AND IMPLICATIONS FOR THE CONSERVATION IN SOUTH ATLANTIC
SUMMARY The Southwestern Atlantic Ocean is an important foraging ground for several albatrosses and petrels during breeding and non-breeding seasons. In this region they meet longline fishing fleets,Expand
Estimates of seabird incidental catch by pelagic longline fisheries in the South Atlantic Ocean
TLDR
The findings support proposals calling for the required use of best-practice mitigation measures by all pelagic longline vessels operating in seabird bycatch hotspots in the South Atlantic Ocean. Expand
Structure of the seabird assemblage associated with pelagic longline vessels in the southwestern Atlantic: implications for bycatch
TLDR
The composition and seasonality of the seabird bycatch is determined by the spatiotemporal dynamics of the assemblage and by the observed pattern of interspecific interactions, which were observed within and between-species competition for access to discards. Expand
Bycatch of great albatrosses in pelagic longline fisheries in the southwest Atlantic: Contributing factors and implications for management
Pelagic longline fisheries in the southwest Atlantic are a major conservation concern for several threatened seabirds, including four species of great albatrosses: wandering albatross (DiomedeaExpand
Assessing the impact of the pelagic longline fishery on albatrosses and petrels in the southwest Atlantic
The black-browed (Thalassarche melanophrys) and Atlantic yellow-nosed (Thalassarche chlororhynchos) albatrosses and the white-chinned petrel (Procellaria aequinoctialis) are the seabird species mostExpand
Interactions of long-line fishing with seabirds in the southwestern Atlantic Ocean, with a focus on White-capped Albatrosses (Thalassarche steadi)
TLDR
The results of this study confirm the occurrence of White-capped Albatross in this region, expanding its global range and show that it is exposed to pelagic long-line fisheries in this part of the Atlantic. Expand
Marine habitat use of wintering spectacled petrels Procellaria conspicillata, and overlap with longline fishery
TLDR
The present study demonstrates the importance of high resolution fishing effort data to address relation- ships between bird marine habitat use and specific fishing fleets, and to determine marine habitats and investigate at sea segregation between closely related species. Expand
Seabird bycatch in the pelagic longline fishery off southern Africa
TLDR
Estimates of the numbers of seabirds killed per year were lower than other studies, an improvement most likely linked to the termination of foreign bilateral agreements, as well as to improved awareness among fishers as a result of ongoing education campaigns. Expand
Standardization of CPUE of loggerhead sea turtle (Caretta caretta) caught by pelagic longliners in the Southwestern Atlantic Ocean
The population abundance estimates used in stock assessments or required to establish management mea- sures, depend on the sampling of the entire demographic spectrum of a population resident in aExpand
Patterns and trends in seabird bycatch in the pelagic longline fishery off South Africa

Potential bycatch of seabirds and turtles in hook-and-line fisheries of the Itaipava Fleet, Brazil
TLDR
M Monitoring the fleet and bycatch levels, development of mitigation measures, establishment of educational programs, government control over the fleet, and enforcement, are urgently required for the hook-and-line fisheries described in the present study. Expand
Spatio-temporal trends of longline fishing effort in the Southern Ocean and implications for seabird bycatch
TLDR
The trends in longline effort of the major pelagic and demersal fisheries in southern waters are described to provide a greater understanding of the potential impact of the Southern Ocean's longline fleets on seabird populations. Expand
