Cetacean Bycatch

In the fishing industry, a bycatch is a fish or other marine species that is caught unintentionally while catching certain target species and target sizes of fish, crabs etc. The fisherman bycatch issue originated due to the “mortality of dolphins in tuna nets in the 1960s”. Hundreds of thousands of cetaceans are killed each year after becoming entangled in nets and bycatch presents one of the most acute threats to cetaceans in many parts of the world.
