Sea Turtle Strandings Cause Concern

Record #:
In 2000, 839 sea turtles stranded along the North Carolina coast, the highest number ever reported. Encounters with boats caused some deaths; net fragments attached to some shells suggested possible entrapment in commercial fishing nets for others. However, causes for 91 percent of the deaths could not be determined.
