"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."

Nigel Brothers, in 1991, calculated that the Japanese Southern
Bluefin Tuna Longline fishery OFF AUSTRALIA ALONE killed c.44 000
albatrosses annually.

At the Albatross Conference held in Hobart in 1995, longlining was a
major topic of concern.
