    South Pacific Islands - Marine turtle resources
    A report prepared for the Fisheries Development Agency Project
    1971
    Also available in:

    The following report is based upon interviews with government and fishery officials and visits to sites of turtle activity such as nesting grounds, feeding areas, market places, turtle fisherman camps, etc. In 1969, the South Pacific Commission (SPC) and the South Pacific Islands Fisheries Development Agency (SPIFDA) sent the Marine Turtle Questionnaires to Fishery Departments in the South and Southwest Pacific and the few replies provided some background information on turtle resources. In most places the respondents to the Questionnaires were interviewed by the author and the information verified the pertinent data are included in this report.

    Guidelines to reduce sea turtle mortality in fishing operations. 2009
    Also available in:

    Sea turtles are affected by a range of different factors, some natural and others caused by human activities, including fishing operations. As a result, all sea turtle species whose conservation status has been assessed are considered to be threatened or endangered. These guidelines provide assistance for the preparation of national or multilateral fisheries management measures and industry initiatives that may help to conserve sea turtles by reducing the negative impacts that fisher ies may have on them. The guidelines are voluntary and nonbinding. Their scope is global, but when they are implemented, national and regional diversity, including cultural and socio-economic differences, should be taken into account. These guidelines present our best understanding of how to reduce interactions between sea turtles and fishing gear and reduce the proportion of caught turtles that are killed as a result of interactions with marine capture fisheries. They include inform ation about how to change fishing gear and fishing methods and how the fishing industry can adopt voluntary approaches to reduce sea turtle mortality. The guidelines make suggestions about implementing management actions, such as input and output controls and bycatch fees and they cover subjects such as bycatch hotspot avoidance, best practices for the handling and release of caught turtles and reducing derelict fishing gear and other marine debris. They also identify fisheries and a reas where fishing may be a relatively important cause of sea turtle deaths. Research, monitoring, information exchange, capacity-building, financial support, socio-economic, cultural and legal aspects are also discussed.
