The research would take place in the waters surrounding Puerto Rico and its adjacent islands including Mona, Monito, Desecheo, Caja-de-Muertos, Vieques and Culebra. Researchers would identify marine habitat, determine distribution and abundance, determine sex ratios, evaluate the extent of ingestion of marine debris, determine growth rates and sexual maturity, and quantify threats. All turtles would be measured, weighed, tagged, and blood sampled. A subset of animals would be lavaged and have transmitters attached to them. The permit would be issued for 5 years.
