    Abstract

    This paper documents recent and ongoing developments in New Zealand’s Exclusive Economic Zone that are relevant to the work of the IMAF working group. The bycatch of seabirds by fisheries within New Zealand’s EEZ in recent years that either breed or forage within the CCAMLR convention area (Convention Area seabirds) is detailed. This paper contains description of the recent and ongoing seabird mitigation trials that are underway in New Zealand. We also briefly report on the ongoing revision of the NPOA-Seabirds which will utilise both Level 1 and Level 2 risk assessment methodologies.
