Draft National Plan of Action – Seabirds bycatch

​Thank you for your interest in the development of Draft National Plan of Action for minimising the incidental catch of seabirds in Australian capture fisheries (NPOA–Seabirds).

The Department of Agriculture and Water Resources released the Draft NPOA–Seabirds for public comment over the five week period ending 9 June 2017. 

The draft NPOA–Seabirds was developed in collaboration with the Northern Territory and state governments, scientists, environmental non-governmental organisations and commercial and recreational fisheries.

The draft NPOA–Seabirds responds to concerns about the incidental catch of seabirds in Australian capture fisheries.

It outlines the need for a nationally consistent and coordinated management approach to avoid or minimise the incidental seabird bycatch in all capture fisheries within Australia.
