Lineage The study had 4 tasks: 1) creation of meta-database of reports and publications providing information about bycatch species from tuna and related fisheries, 2) development of a database for unprocessed and aggregated by-catch data for priority species such as marine mammals, turtles, seabirds, and many sharks, rays and teleost fish that are not subjected to stock assessment by ICCAT. Reporting of these data to ICCAT is not yet mandatory though some reporting occurs voluntarily, 3) interaction with scientists leading national observer programmes to obtain previously unreported data and to make an inventory of past and current observer programmes and 4) development of forms and protocols for the collection of more and higher quality by-catch data in future. For more information see the report.
