Dr Cleo Small - an albatross expert working with the RSPB and BirdLife International - is attending the Recife meeting to try to secure a better future for Atlantic seabirds, especially albatrosses.

Dr Cleo Small said: "The populations of albatrosses are declining faster in the South Atlantic than any other ocean. For example, the wandering albatross - possessing the largest wingspan of any bird - is rapidly declining on South Georgia, and links have been made between these declining populations and longline fishing within the ICCAT fishery. This situation is needless, because the technology exists to prevent these deaths.
"We will be urging delegates to approve rules that make it mandatory for all vessels fishing for tuna and swordfish in the Atlantic to abide by simple measures which lower the risk of albatrosses and other seabirds dying in these fisheries."
Dr Small added: "The main problem is that albatrosses try to steal fish and squid bait from longline fishing hooks.
...
"Dying at a rate of around one every five minutes, the albatross family is becoming threatened faster than any other family of birds", added Dr Small.

Scientists gathered in Brazil on Monday to agree fishing quotas in the Atlantic.   RSPB marine conservationist Dr Cleo Small was there to remind those in attendance that longline fisheries pose a major threat to seabirds and that measures must be adopted by fisheries to prevent further loss and even extinction of some seabirds, especially albatrosses.   Long line fishing is having a devastating impact on albatrosses, which are often attracted to the lines by the bait and then get caught on hooks and dragged underwater where they drown. 18 of the world's 22 species of albatross are now heading for extinction.   Closer to home things are looking up for our native seabirds with the passing of the new Marine Act.
