An Ecological Risk Assessment (ERA) for marine mammals, sea turtles and elasmobranchs captured in artisanal fisheries of the SW Indian Ocean based on interview survey data




The incidental catch of marine megafauna, including marine mammals, sea turtles and elasmobranchs, poses one of the main threats to these species at the global scale. The purpose of this study is to assess the magnitude of bycatch of vulnerable megafauna in the SWIO artisanal fisheries using interview survey data. A total of 961 interviews were conducted in the region, including in Mozambique, Tanzania, Kenya and Mauritius. At least 59 species were identified as bycatch or by-product species, including 5 species of sea turtles, 8 species of marine mammals and 46 species of elasmobranchs.
