I participated in some long-line research cruises around the Samoan Islands.
This fishing targeted pelagic tuna and sword fish.  Sets were generally from
90-250 ft, set around dusk and retrieved in the morning.

I don't recall a single seabird being caught in our fishing.  I would not
expect to see many caught with this type of fishing gear either.  I do not
recall that the issue ever came up in reference to South Pacific long line
fisheries, although the bicatch of turtles was certainly an issue.

I would be interested in hearing what you have come up with in your research.
