Permit No. 1260 authorizes the SEFSC to take loggerhead (Caretta caretta), leatherback (Dermochelys coriacea), Kemp’s ridley (Lepidochelys kempii), hawksbill (Eretmochelys imbricata), green (Chelonia mydas) and olive ridley (Lepidochelys olivacea) sea turtles for scientific research. The SEFSC is requesting authorization to annually capture, measure, weigh, flipper and PIT tag, tissue biopsy, blood sample and release an additional 100 leatherback, 120 loggerhead, 100 green, 50 hawksbill, 50 Kemp’s ridley and 20 olive ridley sea turtles. A subset of 20 of the leatherbacks, 20 of the loggerheads, 20 of the greens, 20 of the hawksbills, 20 of the Kemp’s ridleys and 5 of the olive ridleys captured annually will also have satellite transmitters attached to them. Turtles will be captured using a hoop net. The research will help the SEFSC obtain estimates of survival for juveniles and adults in their benthic and pelagic environments, identify foraging grounds and migration corridors, and determine how both juveniles and adults utilize habitat and are distributed in space and time. The research will help NMFS better understand these sea turtle species’ roles in their ecosystems and provide information that can improve our ability to conserve and manage them.
