Item Identification

Title: Turtle Excluder Device Compliance Data in Southeast Shrimp Fishery
Status: Completed
Abstract:

The April 18, 2014, Biological Opinion requires NOAA Fisheries Gear Monitoring Team to ensure compliance with Turtle Excluder Device (TED) regulations at a level that keeps overall average sea turtle catch rates (i.e., sea turtles that do not escape via the TED and are captured) in the shrimp otter trawl fleet at or below 12%. NOAA’s Office of Law Enforcement (OLE) and Southeast Fisheries Science Center Mississippi Laboratory, inspect TEDs in otter trawls on shrimp vessels in the U.S. Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico for their compliance with TED regulations. The Mississippi Laboratories, with assistance from NOAA Fisheries Southeast Regional Office’s Protected Resources Division, analyzes the TED inspection data to estimate sea turtle capture rates and TED effectiveness.

Purpose:

To provide information on fishermen compliance with Turtle Excluder Device (TED) regulations in the Southeast Region shrimp fishery as required by Biological Opinions.
