Endangered Species Research to publish a theme issue on Fisheries bycatch: problems and solutions


Endangered Species Research (ESR) is an open-access electronic and print journal.  Volume 5, No. 2/3 of 2008 will contain a suite of papers on bycatch of seabirds, turtles and marine mammals in longline, trawl and gillnet fisheries.  Several of the papers to be included in the theme issue address bycatch of ACAP-listed albatrosses in Brazilian and South African waters.


ESR publishes final versions of papers on receipt electronically as “preprints” before they are paginated and printed.
