Abstract: Blue sharks (Prionace glauca, Linnaeus 1758), are repeatedly caught in the surface drifting longline fisheries throughout the eastern Mediterranean Sea. Based on a dataset derived from the Greek and Cypriot commercial fisheries, targeting swordfish during 1998-2005, we applied an information theoretic generalized additive model approach, modeling separately: (1) the probability of making a catch and (2) the positive catch rates. Analyses suggested... (+++)
