Maybe it is a bit like a certain number of human deaths on the road (per km or 
per average volume of traffic) is considered expected and reasonable, if it 
goes significantly above that amount, then additional safeguards (speed zones, 
traffic lights, etc) are implemented.

So how many were expected?? Why weren't the additional measures implemented to 
begin with?

0/10 for calling a spade a spade.

What 'occasional and unintended interactions' really means is that the Geelong 
Star has been killing albatross.

"Occasional and unintended interactions with protected species do occur in 
fishing operations, including with the Geelong Star.

"However when five albatross were killed in a single shot, AFMA took action to 
implement additional mitigation measures as this was higher than expected."
