The applicant requests a five-year permit to continue long-term research on the demographics and movements of green, loggerhead, hawksbill, and Kemp’s ridley sea turtles off the northwest coast of Florida. The objectives of the research are to (1) obtain information on sea turtle ecology and health status; (2) determine the genetic origin of sea turtle populations in the region; (3) monitor turtle foraging habits; and (4) address fine-scale and broad-scale temporal and spatial patterns of sea turtle use and movement patterns. Researchers would capture sea turtles annually by strike net, tangle net, dip net or hand capture. Captured sea turtles would be measured, weighed, passive integrated transponder tagged, flipper tagged, epibiota sampled, tissue sampled, blood sampled, gastric lavaged, carapace marked, photographed, and released. A subset of sea turtles would be fitted with telemetry tags—either a satellite tag or an acoustic tag with an accelerometer. Dated: June 26, 2012. P.
