    The IPOA-SEABIRDS is a voluntary instrument that applies to all States whose fishermen engage in longline fisheries. The text sets out a set of activities which implementing States are expected to carry out, including an assessment of whether a problem exists with respect to the incidental catch of seabirds in its longline fishery, adopting a National Plan of Action for reducing the incidental catch of seabirds in longline fisheries (NPOA-SEABIRDS) as well as procedures for national reviews and reporting requirements.

    The International Plan of Action for Reducing Incidental Catch of Seabirds in Longline Fisheries (IPOA–Seabirds) was developed by FAO in response to the growing concern. The IPOA–Seabirds requests countries with longline fisheries that interact with seabirds to develop a national plan (NPOA–Seabirds) to reduce the incidental seabird catch in their fisheries. Several countries in the South American region have large populations of albatrosses and petrels, and existing assessments and da ta indicate that significant numbers of seabirds are caught annually in several longline fisheries in this region. Thus FAO and BirdLife International organized this joint workshop to discuss albatross and petrel conservation and to initiate the development of NPOA–Seabirds in the regional countries. Representatives of different disciplines (research institutes, fishing industry, nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), governmental agencies) from Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Peru and Urug uay met to discuss topics related to implementation of NPOA-Seabirds. National reports were presented giving an overview of the problem and the status of the progress in the development of their NPOA-Seabirds. Experts representing the United States of America and New Zealand, which have finalized the development of their NPOA-Seabirds, gave presentations of these works. Presentations were also given of regional agreements such as the South American Strategy for the Conservation of Alba trosses and Petrels (ESCAPE), the Agreement on the Conservation of Albatrosses and Petrels (ACAP) and the Southern Seabird Solution (SSS). Discussion groups were set up to discuss mitigation measures, priorities, projects and potential funding sources.

    This is the report of the Expert Consultation on Best Practice Technical Guidelines IPOA/NPOA–Seabirds [International Plan of Action/National Plan of Action for Reducing Incidental Catch of Seabirds in Longline Fisheries], held in Bergen, Norway, from 2 to 5 September 2008. The guidelines are designed to: (i) assist countries in preparing and implementing more effective NPOA–Seabirds; (ii) provide regional fisheries management organizations (RFMOs) with guidance on implementing IPOA– Seabirds within a regional framework; and (iii) address incidental mortality of seabirds from relevant fishing gear. The guidelines emphasize the importance of a cyclical framework of data collection, research and monitoring to quantify and reduce the incidental mortality of seabirds in an adaptive manner. The guidelines cover the following topics: (i) Relevant fishing gears; (ii) Uptake of seabird measures by RFMO/Arrangements; (iii) Defining an incidental catch problem; (iv) Mitig ation measures and related standards; (v) Mitigation research; (vi) Education, training and outreach; (vii) Observer programme; (viii) Seabird incidental catch reduction objectives; (ix) Monitoring and reporting framework for NPOA–Seabirds and regional plans; and (x) Periodic performance review.
