Abstract

Il progetto intende investigare i movimenti delle tartarughe marine comuni Caretta caretta che frequentano il Golfo di Manfredonia, recentemente riconosciuto come una importante zona neritica di alimentazione per questa specie nel mar Adriatico. Le 5 tartarughe monitorate in questo progetto sono state catturate da reti a strascico nel Golfo di Manfredonia. Per ridurre al minimo lo stress per gli animali, le trasmittenti satellitari sono state applicate appena possibile dopo l’arrivo delle tartarughe al porto e le tartarughe sono state rilasciate subito dopo.

This project aims to investigate the movement patterns of loggerhead sea turtles frequenting the Gulf of Manfredonia, which was recently recognized as an important neritic foraging ground for this species in the Adriatic Sea. The 5 turtles monitored by this project were incidentally caught by trawlers fishing in the Gulf. In order to minimize the stress induced, the satellite trasmitters were attached as soon as possible after turtle landing, then turtles were immediately released .
