The impact of video monitoring on estimating black petrel bycatch in bottom longline fisheries was assessed. Combining observer and video monitoring data resulted in lower estimated captures compared with using observer data alone. Simulations of different proportions of assessed video footage suggest currently overpredicted estimates of black petrel captures. Also, the analysis suggests that the presence of observers and/or cameras increased fishers’ compliance to report black petrel captures.
