Revisiting the ontogenetic shift paradigm: The case of juvenile green turtles in the SW Atlantic
REDUCING INCIDENTAL MORTALITY OF FRANCISCANA DOLPHIN PONTOPORIA BLAINVILLEI WITH ACOUSTIC WARNING DEVICES ATTACHED TO FISHING NETS
Although pingers show promise as a management tool for this species, pinniped depredation suggests that higher pinger frequencies will be needed to avoid a “dinner bell” effect.

The first pan-Atlantic analysis of spatio-temporal distribution of the leatherback turtle is performed and overlap with longline fishing effort is ascertain, suggesting that the Atlantic probably consists of two regional management units: northern and southern.

This study finds that animal matter, in particular gelatinous plankton, was consumed in large proportions compared to herbivorous food items such as terrestrial plants and macroalgae in the diet of the neritic green sea turtles.

Argentinian coastal waters: A temperate habitat for three species of threatened sea turtles
It is suggested that an important concentration of these species occurs in the estuarine, highly productive areas of Samborombón Bay and El Rincón, although green and loggerheads were also recorded as far south as northern Patagonian waters.
