Abstract

Interactions between commercial fisheries and seabirds in the northern Pacific Ocean are increasing with rising consumption of fishery products. As fishing expands into remote areas previously not fished, additional populations of seabirds may be affected. Some interactions such as introduction of fish processing wastes into the environment may be beneficial for seabirds, while others such as competition for fish prey and incidental take by fishing nets may have negatively affected seabird populations.
