Description: Miscellaneous Paper
Abstract: The US Army Corps of Engineers (CE) sponsored the "National Workshop on Methods to Minimize Dredging Impacts on Sea Turtles," held on 11-12 May 1988 in Jacksonville, FL, to focus on national concerns about dredging effects on sea turtles with specific reference to dredging operations in Cape Canaveral and King's Bay ship channels. The primary objective of the workshop was to identify methods that would prevent further sea turtle mortalities by dredges. The workshop addressed both biological and engineering aspects of the subject through formal presentations, group discussions, and subgroup sessions. The workshop conclusions proposed several methods of immediate and long-term actions as well as identified areas of needed information. Participants included 71 representatives from the CE, National Marine Fisheries Service, US Fish and Wildlife Service, US Navy, dredging industry, universities, and other related support agencies and organizations.
