The albatross can live up to 70 years and its wings have a wingspan of up to 3.5 meters. The longline fish, the real prey of which is tuna, puts the albatross at great risk, because here an approximately 100 km long line with around three thousand hooks is towed through the water. However, the albatrosses also get caught in this hook, so that up to forty thousand of them die each year.
