Abstract
  • Incidental catch represent the major threats to the survival and to the general decline of loggerhead turtle (Caretta caretta) in the Mediterranean Sea. More than 60.000 turtles are estimated to be caught annually as a result of fishing practices, mortality rates ranging from 10 percent to 50 percent of individuals caught. Bottom trawl is considered among different fishing gears as one of major sources of impact on sea turtle populations especially in the Gulf of Gab├ęs, northern Adriatic Sea, South Turkey and Egypt, where the continental shelf is large and turtles in demersal phase are regularly found, also in winter time. Four adult-sized Loggerhead turtles, captured incidentally by bottom trawls in the Central-Northern Adriatic Sea were kept in captivity in rescue centres, tagged with satellite transmitters and released when completely rehabilitated. Bottom trawl tracks data obtained from vessel monitoring system (VMS) were analysed by VMSbase R suite to define the area with intensive effort. The turtle tracks were finally overlapped with the fishing areas most impacted in order to identify habitats of distribution of C. caretta that deserve special attention for the potential impact on the marine turtle population in the Central-Northern Adriatic Sea.
