The bycatch communication network newsletter was an initiative of judges
(myself included) from the first WWF SmartGear (www.smartgear.org
<http://www.smartgear.org/> ) competition in February 2005.  The idea
was to produce a newsletter to share developments, projects and issues
on marine bycatch.  There are currently 100 subscribers from 20
countries, the first issue was distributed in April and the second is
due in early August.  Articles from the first issue included:
*         Fishing gear involved in entanglements of right and humpback
whales (US)       
*         Shark oil: solution to longline seabird bycatch? (AUS)
