Turtle Exclusion Devices (TEDs) are being produced and made available free of charge to Skimmer Trawl Fishermen in the Gulf of Mexico. This incentive for voluntary conversion to turtle safe gear will reduce sea turtle mortality.
This map shows a general area in which land acquisitions, protection, or restoration activities occur. These general areas will be replaced by specific project polygons if/when that information becomes available.↩
