Hello everybody! 

 

New book on birds and mammal by-catch is published in Russia (apologies for
cross-postings):

 

Artukhin Yu. B., Burkanov V. N., Nikulin V. S. Accidental By-Catch Of Marine
Birds And Mammals In The Salmon Gillnet Fishery In The Northwestern Pacific
Ocean. Moscow: Skorost' Tsveta, 2010. - 264 p. (in Russian with English
summary) ISBN 978-5-9902255-1-0

 

The origins and development of the salmon driftnet fishery in the northwest
Pacific are described. The scope of the modern gillnet fishery in the
Russian Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ), as well as its research and
monitoring programs. Gillnet fishery methods in the Russian EEZ and the
monitoring effort by commercial Japanese and scientific Russian fleets are
described. Marine bird and mammal by-catch data collected during the large
scale salmon fishery from the 1990s through the early 2000s are summarized
in detail. Species composition and seasonal, inter-annual and geographic
variation in by-catch mortality are analyzed. Estimates of bird and mammal
mortality in gillnets are presented and the potential effect of the fishery
on populations is discussed. Global measures to mitigate gillnet by-catch
are presented, as is the potential of implementing some of these measures in
Russian waters.
