Need

There have been various marine turtle mitigation research projects conducted in Australia that deserve to be disseminated to the rest of the world. These projects have included TED research in prawn trawl fisheries, handling/gear modification research in longline fisheries, and turtle friendly crab pots. FRDC has been instrumental in most of these projects. Additionally Australian fisheries and researchers have at times been seen as world leaders in cooperative research projects and also in novel ways in working together to make a difference. The 29th Symposium on Sea Turtle Biology and Conservation is the perfect avenue to display our successes and show the world how the right amount of research dollars, fishers who want to be involved and also scientists with a passion can make a difference in the area of marine turtle mitigation.

Objectives

1. Disseminate Australian research results focusing on sea turtle interactions by commercial fishing at the 29th International Symposium on Sea Turtle Biology and Conservation, Brisbane February 2009.
