This document summarizes the results of at-sea observer sample and data collection activities on board the F/V Pacific Viking between May 3 and May 29, 2015. This document details the results of the collection of coral and sponge bycatch in accordance with the Interim SGaan Kinghlas-Bowie Seamount Observer Coral and Sponge Data Collection Requirements. The at-sea observer reported sponges were caught on 11 occasions; corals were caught 16 times during the 70 fishing events. The catches were comprised of six unique species of sponge and six unique species of coral that were confirmed from samples and photographs collected by the at-sea observer and detailed in this report"--Abstract, p. iv.
