Marine vertebrate bycatch: problems and solutions

 

One of the first ESR Specials (Fisheries bycatch: problems and solutions [2008]) explored the burgeoning field of bycatch research, focusing primarily on bycatch of sea turtles, sea birds and marine mammals. Many of its 24 articles became highly influential. Even a decade ago, bycatch of marine megafauna was not a new problem in fisheries management but was already recognized as being of pressing conservation concern. In the intervening years, research into both the problem of fisheries bycatch and the possible solutions has advanced in great strides. It is now time to assess where the situation has improved or worsened and to identify the key opportunities and barriers to making progress. This ESR Special seeks to bring together a body of work that addresses these points. Research articles and reviews are equally welcomed.

 

Articles belonging to this Special are published upon completion in the respective volume of ESR. They will be listed below as well as on the contents page of the respective volume of publication.
