Simulating Drifting Fish Aggregating Device Trajectories To Identify Potential Interactions With Endangered Sea Turtles

June 05, 2024

Exploring the potential connection between dFADs deployment areas and important oceanic or coastal critically endangered leatherback and hawskbill sea turtle habitats in the Pacific Ocean.

We conduct a passive-drift Lagrangian experiments using simulated dFAD drift profiles and compared them with known important sea turtle areas.
