Recent improvements to the web interface of the Bycatch Mitigation Information System (BMIS) have made it easier to use.

Firstly, new user tips on the main search pages for both bycatch mitigation methods and references will help you to find what you're looking for.

Secondly, with one click you can now move from a description of a mitigation method to a list of related references or, alternatively, to a list of related tuna RFMO regulations.

Lastly, you will find an improved layout when you click through to detailed reference information.
