Researchers will annually capture up to 600 green and 10 hawksbill sea turtles by hand, scoop net, entanglement net, and bullpen net. All green sea turtles will be measured, weighed, passive integrated transponder tagged, and flipper tagged. A subset of green sea turtles will have their shell etched with an identification mark, be blood sampled, tissue sampled, lavaged, and have an electronic tag attached to them. Hawksbill sea turtles will be measured, weighed, passive integrated transponder tagged, flipper tagged, blood sampled, PO 00000 Frm 00014 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 75945 and tissue sampled. All animals will be released alive. The permit is issued for five years.
