Sea-bird fishing-related mortality by conservation status (2006/7 to 2012/13)
New Zealand's Environment Reporting Series: The Ministry for the Environment and Statistics New Zealand
Along with sea lions, fur seals, and dolphins, seabirds are the protected species most directly affected by fisheries in New Zealand waters. Reporting on the risk of threatened and at-risk seabirds dying as a result of fishing activities each year is one way of assessing the pressure some seabird species face from current fishing practices. This dataset relates to the "Bycatch of protected species: seabirds" measure on the Environmental Indicators, Te taiao Aotearoa website.
