The applicant proposes to study whether mis-oriented turtles are able to crawl towards the ocean and swim offshore. The results of the study would help determine if these turtles remain behaviorally competent when released at beach sites and are likely to complete their offshore migration, and whether they are likely to survive and contribute to population recovery. The applicant would conduct the research on 80 loggerhead hatchlings. The sea turtle hatchlings would have a lightweight float attached to them and they would be tracked by boat or kayak as they migrate offshore. At the conclusion of its swimming trial, each hatchling would be captured to remove the float gear. If the turtle was heading properly offshore, it would be released to continue its journey. If the turtle was heading in the incorrect direction, it would be released the next afternoon in the Gulf Stream. The applicant is requesting authorization from NMFS to conduct the in-water activities relating to the research. The research activities would occur in the waters of Florida and the applicant requests a 2–year permit. PO 00000 Frm 00015 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 11619 Dated: March 4, 2005. Stephen L.
