    Abstract

    France presented at the CCAMLR XXVIIth meeting, an action plan aiming to reduce incidental seabird mortality by half in the French EEZ included in the statistic division and subarea 58.5.1 and 58.6, for the period 2008/2009 to 2011/2012.

    France demonstrated at the CCAMLR XXXth meeting, to have successfully fulfilled its commitments and to have obtained encouraging results concerning the global diminution of seabird incidental mortality.

    In addition to the sharp decrease in incidental catch of seabirds in the French EEZ (see statistical report), this document presents new proposals that France would like to implement in order to pursue its efforts to minimize incidental captures.
