We briefly summarize the available literature (17 documents) on the nature of seabird interactions with trawl gear, efforts to date on the development of technologies to prevent these interactions, and management imperatives affecting the Alaska trawl fleet. We also summarize available literature on cooperative research with the fishing industry (2 documents). The purpose of this review was to bring this emerging issue in seabird conservation to the attention of the fishing industry and fishery managers, and to inform the process of developing appropriate mitigation technologies for the Alaska fleet.
