    Abstract

    France's action plan aims to reduce considerably seabird by-catch by longliners operating in the Crozet and Kerguelen EEZs. The aim of the present document is to list the set of measures that France will pursue in the next few years to limit bird mortality. The plan will also list the measures which have been implemented since 2002 to limit seabird by-catch. This action plan is submitted in response to the recommendation made during the CCAMLR-XXVI meeting that France should 'urgently submit a strategic plan to eliminate seabird mortality' (SC-CAMLR-XXVI, paragraph 5.6 (vii)).
