Short-tailed Albatross (Phoebastria albatrus)

The short-tailed albatross is currently listed as Endangered under the Endangered Species Act and is protected by the Migratory bird Treaty Act which are implemented by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS). In order to address the issue of bycatch in commercial fisheries, USFWS works with the National Marine Fisheries Service to set bycatch limits for the short-tailed albatross and implement seabird deterrent measures and requirements to reduce incidental take of seabirds. The State of Alaska retains trust responsibility of this species, and currently lists the short-tailed albatross on the State Endangered Species list.
