Seabird attendance and incidental mortality at shrimp fisheries in Golfo San Jorge, Argentina
Many seabirds are attracted to trawl vessels to make use of fishery waste, and often this attraction results in increased incidental mortality. We assessed seabird attendance and associated incidental mortality at the ...
Marine protected areas, spatial scales, and governance: implications for the conservation of breeding seabirds
