We investigated cause-specific temporal and spatial trends in sea turtle strandings in the Hawaiian Archipelago. Five species of sea turtle were recorded in 3,861 strandings over a 22-year period (1982–2003). Green turtles comprised 97% of these strandings with size and gender composition reflecting the demographic structure of the resident green turtle population and relative green turtle abundance in Hawaiian waters. The cause of strandings was determined by necropsy based on a complete gross… Expand

Long-term spatial and temporal patterns of sea turtle strandings in southern Brazil
TLDR
It is suggested that time/area closures and/or reduction in gill net, pair trawl, and possibly double-rig trawl fishing effort in coastal waters of southern Brazil during austral spring and summer be considered for future fisheries management plans. Expand
Sixteen Year (2002-2017) Record of Sea Turtle Strandings on Samandağ Beach, the Eastern Mediterranean Coast of Turkey.
TLDR
The present study contributes to the stranded data for both sea turtle species in the Mediterranean by investigating life stages, temporal variation in the number of stranded, body size trend, causes of stranding, and scute deviation of stranded sea turtles on Samandağ Beach, the eastern Mediterranean coast of Turkey during 2002-2017.

Spatial analysis of marine turtle stranding data in the Hawaiian Islands for the period 2002 -2007: Is turtle health an indicator of environmental quality?
Abstract: Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is becoming a very important and useful tool in conservation planning and is applied here to examine the relationship between marine turtles and theirExpand
Spatio‐temporal distribution of sea turtle strandings and factors contributing to their mortality in south‐eastern Brazil
Data on stranded sea turtles were examined between 2010 and 2016 along the northern region of Rio de Janeiro state and between 2016 and 2017 in the southern region, looking for spatio‐temporalExpand
Patterns and inferred processes associated with sea turtle strandings in Paraíba State, Northeast Brazil.
TLDR
Systematic data collection from stranded sea turtles can provide useful biological information, such as seasonal and spatial patterns in their occurrence and mortality, age structure, sex ratio and diet, as well as possible mortality causes. Expand
Sea turtle strandings reveal high anthropogenic mortality in Italian waters
1. Spatio-temporal distribution and anthropogenic mortality factors were investigated in loggerhead turtles (Caretta caretta) found stranded or floating in the waters around Italy. A total of 5938Expand
Estimating At-Sea Mortality of Marine Turtles from Stranding Frequencies and Drifter Experiments
TLDR
It is shown that drifter trials combined with beach monitoring can provide estimates for death at sea to measure the impact of small-scale fisheries that are notoriously difficult to monitor for by-catch and highlight the importance of estimating impacts of small–scale fisheries on marine megafauna.

Sea turtle stranding events along the Mauritanian coast
Despite Mauritania’s proximity to globally recognized sea turtle nesting hotspots, the Bijagos Archipelago in Guinea-Bissau and Boavista Island within the Cabo Verde Archipelago, data on the statusExpand
Likely locations of sea turtle stranding mortality using experimentally-calibrated, time and space-specific drift models
Abstract Sea turtle stranding events provide an opportunity to study drivers of mortality, but causes of strandings are poorly understood. A general sea turtle carcass oceanographic drift model wasExpand
Long-term insights into marine turtle sightings, strandings and captures around the UK and Ireland (1910–2018)
Abstract With over a century of records, we present a detailed analysis of the spatial and temporal occurrence of marine turtle sightings and strandings in the UK and Ireland between 1910 and 2018.Expand

Spatial and temporal variability in somatic growth of green sea turtles (Chelonia mydas) resident in the Hawaiian Archipelago
TLDR
The Hawaiian green turtle stock is characterised by slow growth rates displaying significant spatial and temporal variation and an immature growth spurt, which is consistent with similar findings for a Great Barrier Reefgreen turtle stock that also comprises many foraging-ground populations spanning a wide geographic range.

TLDR
Comparison with four previously published live animal survey studies suggests that stranding records are a good indicator of species composition and yield reasonable data on the frequency of occurrence of species in the region they cover. Expand

Green Sea Turtles Stranded by Cyclone Kathy on the South-Westeern Coast of the Culf of Carpentaria
TLDR
Of the mature females sampled, 62% were preparing to breed in the next breeding season but none had bred in the previous season, and Hawksbill turtles, Eretmochelys imbricata, and olive ridley turtles, Lepidochelys olivacea, which occur in the deeper offshore waters were also not stranded. Expand
