Summary

The Final Global Seabird Bycatch Assessment Workshop was held from 25 February to 1 March 2019. Participants at the workshop are listed in Annex 1; the workshop agenda is shown in Annex 2. The workshop comprised presentations, data analysis and discussion. Workshop participants agreed to a report format that was focused on Background/Methods/Results/Discussion, in order to present the results of the analyses in the clearest way.

The report adoption procedure was discussed and explained to participants. The report adopted at the workshop, with track changes and agreed additional amendments annoted as ‘comments’, was circulated to all participants as the meeting closed. The project team them completed the amendments as agreed by participants, and the technical annexes were added. This cleaned version was then circulated to all participants and then shared with FAO, and finalised. No further diagnostics can be undertaken as the dataset no longer exists.
