Title: Sea Turtle Stranding Network Reports
Short Name: STSSN Reports
Status: In Work
Abstract:

The Sea Turtle Stranding and Salvage Network (STSSN) was formally established in 1980 to collect information on and document the stranding of marine turtles along the U.S. Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic coasts. The network encompasses the coastal areas of the eighteen state region

from Maine through Texas, and includes portions of the U.S. Caribbean.

Data are compiled through the efforts of network participants who document marine turtle strandings in their respective areas and contribute those data to the centralized STSSN database.

The publicly available reports from this system provide summary or detailed information about the stranding information for a selected year and other chosen selection criteria.

Purpose:

To provide reports on the stranding of marine turtles that occur on Atlantic and Gulf Coasts of the United States.

Notes:

This is Preliminary data and is subject to change and is not recommended for use in publication and analysis.
