Seabirds, marine mammals, and turtles are caught in New Zealand commercial fisheries. These captures are reported by Ministry of Fisheries observers when they are onboard fishing vessels. In this report, summaries of the captures are presented for all observed trawl and longline fishing events within the New Zealand Exclusive Economic Zone between 1 October 1998, and 30 September 2007. Where there was sufficient observer coverage within a stratum, a ratio method was used to estimate the total captures with bootstrap confidence intervals.
