Seabirds, turtles and sharks are often of conservation concern because they are frequently bycatch in fisheries. Fisheries managers shifting from a target species focus to an ecosystembased approach are being required to consider the impact of fisheries on non-target species. There are a range of complementary management tools that help reduce bycatch, such as gear restrictions, temporal restrictions, and bycatch reduction devices.
