The seabird risk assessment provides risk rankings for seabirds in commercial fisheries in New Zealand waters. This study used simulated fishing effort and observer data to test the sensitivity of the seabird risk assessment to a reduction in observed captures. The results indicate that, because of low observer coverage, the government will be unable to demonstrate that seabird risk reduction goals have been met, even if no seabird captures are reported by observers for three years.
