Stats boffins needed for global seabird bycatch assessments

Ross Wanless, July 29, 2016

Hi all

BirdLife South Africa is implementing a seabird bycatch project for high seas tuna fishing. Part of this work involves a collaborative, global assessment of seabird bycatch rates, totals, by fleets, ocean basins, etc.

Please see the [vacancy announcement on our website] (

We'd like a stats expert, preferably someone/a team with stock assessment, bycatch data and seabird experience to assist in the process. Terms of Reference for a service provider are on the website
