Up to 120 green sea turtles would be additionally epiphyte sampled. An additional 25 green turtles would also be satellite tagged, tracked, and fecal sampled prior to release. In project 2, the applicant proposes to take up to 15 green, 135 Kemp’s ridley, and 10 loggerhead sea turtles via entanglement net annually. Turtles would be measured, weighed, photographed, epibiota removed, flipper and PIT tagged, epiphyte and tissue sampled. Another 10 green, 14 Kemp’s ridley, and 40 loggerhead sea turtles that have been legally captured by relocation trawlers working in conjunction with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers would be authorized for these activities each year. A subset of up to 14 Kemp’s ridley sea turtles would be satellite tagged, tracked, and fecal sampled annually. In project 3, the applicant proposes to take up to 12 green and 12 Kemp’s ridley sea turtles annually. Turtles would be collected via entanglement net, measured, photographed, weighed, epibiota removed, flipper and PIT tagged, and blood sampled. In project 4, the applicant proposes to take up to 20 green and 20 loggerhead sea turtles annually. Sea turtles would be captured via entanglement or cast net, measured, weighed, photographed, epibiota removed, flipper and PIT tagged, blood and tissue sampled. Up to 200 Kemp’s ridley, 20 loggerhead, 20 green, and 10 hawksbill sea turtles would additionally be satellite tagged, tracked, blood and fecal sampled each year. Dated: November 19, 2010. P.

NIST recently completed a draft report of their technical study and the principal findings are summarized in this report. The report also describes NIST’s simulation of the fire environment that affected the rapid fire growth, possible factors contributing to the fire development, and rapid fire spread sequence. The report concludes with eleven recommendations that involve modification, adoption, or enforcement of model building and fire codes and research for improving fire safety.
