N.C. Turtle Data Adding to Global Census


Author(s):
Abstract:
A Fishery Resource Grant project to track turtles in the Pamlico Sound is also providing data for a marine life census that stretches around the world. The Pamlico project is designed to determine movements of loggerheads and other turtles in an effort to reduce the number of turtles caught in flounder gill nets. Using a single satellite, the project tracked forty-five turtles, making it one of the world's largest turtle-tracking studies. Mosher gives an update of the project.
