New information summarizing bycatches of marine mammals and seabirds is presented. Bycatch levels of small cetaceans are considered in relation to their population sustainability. There is a continuing urgent need for mitigation measures to be applied in the Baltic Sea, Kattegat/Belt Seas, and off the Iberian Peninsula to reduce harbour porpoise bycatch, and in the Mediterranean to reduce bottlenose dolphin bycatch. ICES makes a series of recommendations that could improve information and knowledge on bycatch of these species in the future.
