Tropical Purse Seine Fisheries Bycatch: Indian Ocean

|Tags:||Bycatch, FADs, Purse Seine, Rays, Sharks, Tuna|
Each graphic highlights a particular region — the Indian Ocean, in this one.
First, on the left, the graphic shows the percentage of the catch that is either target tuna or bycatch — in each ocean region, and based on set type (fish aggregating device or FAD, free school, and dolphin).
Then, on the right, the graphic takes a closer look at free-school-set-related bycatch in the highlighted ocean region, with percentages for each marine species.
The data are from 2017, except for the Atlantic Ocean data, which are from 2016.
