28/03/2022: minor edits. This review has been carried out as part of a special advice request to ICES from DGENV with the aim to evaluate appropriate bycatch monitoring systems at Member State level and on regional coordination to comply with obligations under the Birds, Habitats and Marine Strategy Framework Directives. Three independent reviewers met online, reviewed relevant literature and summarized current practice on i) bycatch risk assessments of Protected, Endangered and Threatened Species (PETS), ii) bycatch monitoring programs and sampling protocols, iii) métiers and areas with reported PETS bycatch, iv) issues with sampling resolution for estimating total bycatch of PETS, and v) monitoring by Member States. Some conclusions and recommendations on best practice design for PETS bycatch sampling programs are included at the end of the report. The review is attached as Annex 1.
