Southeastern Shrimp Otter (TED) Inspections Compliance Sea Turtle Capture Rates and TED Effectiveness

When legally-constructed Turtle Excluder Devices (TEDs) operate correctly in shrimp otter trawls, a small percentage of the sea turtles entering the nets (i.e., ~3%) still do not escape and are captured. When TEDs are installed incorrectly and/or not properly maintained, TED effectiveness can be reduced and result in more than a 3% sea turtle capture rate; in severe cases, TED effectiveness can be completely compromised (i.e., have a 100% sea turtle capture rate).
