Indicators for our changing world
Low Breeding Frequency
Delayed Sexual Maturity
Highly migratory species such as albatrosses and petrels cannot be conserved by one country acting independently of other nations which share the same species populations
Entry into the agreement allows members to implement complementary action plans to :
protect critical habitat
control non-native species detrimental to albatrosses and petrels
introduce measures to reduce the incidental catch of seabirds in long-line fisheries
support research into the effective conservation of albatrosses and petrels
Overlap of the combined density grid of breeding albatrosses and petrels with total pelagic effort (blue) and demersal effort (green) for 1998. Fisheries data from Tuck et al. (2003)
Signatories - Spain, UK, New Zealand, Australia, Peru, Chile Ecuador, Argentina, South Africa and Norway
Currently protects all southern hemisphere albatross species and seven species of southern hemisphere petrels
Northern hemisphere species may benefit from incorporation into the Agreement
“It is in America’s interests to work with the international community to preserve the productivity and health of the oceans and to secure cooperation among nations everywhere in managing marine assets wisely.”
