Permit No. 1596–02 authorizes the SWFSC to capture, measure, weigh, blood and tissue sample, photograph, flipper and PIT tag, fat biopsy, ultrasound, satellite tag, and attach a VHF/TDR/sonic tag/video system, VHR/ TDR/sonic tag/GPS unit, or VHR/TDR/ sonic tag/GPS/video camera system to leatherback (Dermochelys coriacea) sea turtles during research activities conducted off the western coast of the continental United States. Animals with the video camera system may be reapproached to collect the unit and then sampled, tagged, and have another video camera unit attached. The SWFSC requests authorization to use a direct tag attachment method in place of previously authorized harness attachments. These tags would provide valuable information on leatherback movements and behavior in the Pacific Ocean between their foraging areas and nesting beaches. No increase in the number of animals taken is requested. The research would continue to occur in waters off the coast of the western United States through February 1, 2012.
