Among the most depleted and valuable global fisheries are tuna, swordfish and other highly migratory species that move in between the high seas and State waters. These fisheries also generate significant bycatch, including seabirds, turtles and mammals. State-of-the-art tracking data coupled with remotely sensed oceanography can now be used to model the distribution and movements of species in relation to dynamic ocean features, allowing for real time management of target and non-target species.
