 The present study provides estimates of seabird captures in commercial trawl and longline fisheries in New Zealand’s Exclusive Economic Zone. Estimates were obtained from statistical models that integrated fishing effort and observer data. The current estimates update previous analyses to the 2016–17 fishing year. In this most recent fishing year, an estimated total of 4210 (95% credible interval: 3508–5296) seabirds were captured in New Zealand’s trawl and longline fisheries.
