Abstract Seabird mortality in longline fishing has been implicated in the decline of many populations around the world. The population of the Black-browed Albatross breeding in the Falkland Islands has been estimated to have declined by 87500 pairs between 1995 and 2000. The observed mortality in the Patagonian Toothfish longline fishery in Falkland Islands waters in 2001–02 was 29 seabirds, including 27 Black-browed Albatrosses, giving an estimated total mortality of 134 (95% confidence limits… Expand
Trends in seabird and Patagonian Toothfish Dissostichus eleginoides longliner interactions in Falkland Island waters, 2002/03 and 2003/04
TLDR
Demersal longliners fishing for Patagonian Toothfish Dissostichus eleginoides in the Falkland Islands have hooked and drowned birds of six species, including Black-browed Albatrosses Thalassarche melanophrys and White-chinned Petrels Procellaria aequinoctialis. Expand
Demographic parameters of black-browed albatrosses Thalassarche melanophris from the Falkland Islands
TLDR
The results indicate that the Falklands population of black-browed albatross may not be as threatened as previously supposed, although studies from more sites and a longer time series are needed to confirm or refute this. 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
Effect of longline configuration on seabird mortality in the Argentine semi-pelagic Kingclip Genypterus blacodes fishery
Abstract Incidental mortality of seabirds caused by longline fisheries in the south-western Atlantic Ocean has been assessed only with reference to the number of birds caught, not taking into accountExpand
Estimating mortality of black-browed albatross (Thalassarche melanophris, Temminck, 1828) and other seabirds in the Argentinean factory trawl fleet and the use of bird-scaring lines as a mitigation measure
TLDR
Bird-scaring lines eliminated seabird mortality caused by collisions with trawl cables and are recommended as a short- to medium-term measure to mitigate seabirds mortality in this fishery. Expand
Characterizing seabird bycatch in the eastern Australian tuna and billfish pelagic longline fishery in relation to temporal, spatial and biological influences.
TLDR
The use of live fish bait was generally associated with increased captures of both seabirds overall, and flesh-footed shearwaters in particular, with bycatch being lowest in winter, and remaining at similar levels across the other seasons. Expand
Seabird bycatch in the Brazilian pelagic longline fishery and a review of capture rates in the southwestern Atlantic Ocean
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 forExpand
Environmental and operational variability affecting the mortality of Black-browed Albatrosses associated with long-liners in Argentina
TLDR
Seasonal differences in the distribution of captures were observed, being widely distributed to the north of the shelf-break during autumn—winter and mostly concentrated in southernmost latitudes, closer to the presumed breeding area in the Malvinas (Falkland) Islands during spring—summer. Expand
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
The Patagonian toothfish: biology, ecology and fishery.
TLDR
Patagonian toothfish (Dissostichus eleginoides) is a large notothenioid fish that supports valuable fisheries throughout the Southern Ocean, and studies using genetics, biochemistry, parasite fauna and tagging indicate a high degree of isolation between populations. Expand

Seabird mortality in the Patagonian toothfish longline fishery around the Prince Edward Islands, 1996–2000
TLDR
It is estimated that the combined impact of legal and IUU longline fishing around the Prince Edward Islands over the past four years could have resulted in between 7000 and 17 000 seabird mortalities and could have had significant impacts on the breeding populations of several seabirds species breeding on the PrinceEdward Islands.

FACTORS AFFECTING THE INCIDENTAL MORTALITY OF SEABIRDS IN THE DISSOSTICHUS ELEGlNOlDES FISHERY IN THE SOUTHWEST ATLANTIC (SUBAREA 48.3,1995 SEASON)
This paper analyses all incidental mortality of seabirds recorded on Argentinian and Chilean vessels fishing for Patagonian toothfish (Dissostichus eleginoides) in Subarea 48.3 during the 1995Expand
Interactions between longline vessels and seabirds in Kerguelen waters and a method to reduce seabird mortality
TLDR
It is proposed that the dumping of homogenized offal during line settings should be included in the regulations of the longline fishery for Dissostichus in order to minimize seabird mortality. Expand
Preliminary stock assessment of the Patagonian toothfish longline fishery around the Falkland Islands
TLDR
An initial analysis of toothfish numbers caught in 1994 suggests that these are changing at rates faster than expected from simple demographic processes, and it is still not possible to derive reliable estimates for the size of the toothfish population currently exploited around the Falkland Islands.

Seabird mortality in the Japanese tuna longline fishery around Australia, 1988–1995
TLDR
Large numbers of seabirds are killed each year within the Australian Fishing Zone by Japanese longline vessels targeting tuna, and most species of birds killed were characterised by unequal representation of sex and age cohorts, and these unequal representations were not consistent between fishing grounds or seasons.

Foraging distribution of the black-browed albatross, Thalassarche melanophris, breeding in the Falkland Islands

The importance of the Patagonian Shelf for top predator species breeding at South Georgia
TLDR
The Patagonian Shelf is, therefore, not only of global importance for the diversity and abundance of its resident top predators but is just as critical for the survival of many visiting species, some of which are even more endangered. Expand
