AbstractWe herein report two incidents of Balearic Shearwater (Puffinus mauretanicus) trawling bycatch in the western Mediterranean, in May 2011. Both incidents, which involved single individuals, took place during the course of an experimental trawling cruise across the Mediterranean Iberian shelf, and coincided with operations when high numbers of shearwaters were present in relatively shallow waters. These incidents provide for the first time evidence of trawling bycatch for this Critically Endangered seabird. Although trawling bycatch events appear to be rare, they could be of concern under particular conditions, and further research is needed to assess the relevance of this threat.
