Regional Assessment – Western Indian Ocean




Research on bycatch of long-lived, air-breathing vertebrates is at a relatively nascent stage in the Western Indian Ocean. There are reports of bycatches of dugongs, sea turtles, and dolphins (humpback and bottlenose), primarily in gillnet and trawl fisheries. In the southern-most latitudes of this region, seabird bycatch has also been documented in longline gear. Recently, local scientists have initiated efforts to assess bycatch of sea turtles and marine mammals in the region. In particular, members of the Western Indian Ocean Marine Science Association (WIOMSA) have initiated collaborative projects to investigate bycatch of marine mammals and sea turtles.
