Sea Turtle Bycatch in the West Indian Ocean: Review, Recommendations and Research Priorities

Within the framework of the FAO project GCP/INT/919/JPN and a review of published or available data, the relative importance of fishery-related sea turtle mortality in the West Indian Ocean region was assessed for Kenya, Madagascar, Mauritius, Maldives, Mozambique, Seychelles, Somalia, South Africa, Reunion, Tanzania and Yemen. Three fisheries were identified to significantly impact marine turtles: gillnetting, prawn/shrimp trawling and longlining, but it clearly appears that there is a global lack of published and reliable information regarding marine turtle population assessments and interaction with fisheries in the WIO.
