  • Description:
    "On the basis of biological opinions issued under the Endangered Species Act (ESA), an observer program for the Hawaiian longline fishery has been in place since 1994 to record sea turtle interactions. Observed take locations for the first 4 years of the observer program are shown in Figures 1-4, for the turtle species so far observed to interact with the longline gear: loggerhead turtles (Caretta caretta), olive ridley turtles (Lepidochelys olivacea), leatherback turtles (Dermochelys coriacea), and green turtles (Chelonia mydas). Hawksbill turtles (Eretmochelys imbricata) are also known to exist in the region, but no takes of this species have been observed in the longline fishery"--Intro.
