Models may help reduce bycatch from longline fishing: Fourteen variables predict month-by-month locations of longline fleets

Hundreds of thousands of sharks, sea birds and other marine species are accidentally killed each year after becoming snagged or entangled in longline fishing gear. New models may help reduce the threat by giving regulatory agencies a new tool to predict the month-by-month movements of longline fleets on the high seas and determine where and when by-catch risks are greatest.
