  • Date Format: MM slash DD slash YYYY

  • Please describe your project in simple, non-technical language e.g. The team, working in conjunction with local fishermen, will aim to get fishing legislation revised. Through sampling both turtles caught and the stock available, the researchers will seek to provide a definitive list of regulations to guide future fishing practices such as minimum and maximum shell length and defined closed seasons. On an ongoing basis, the team will work to monitor the level of compliance with these new regulations (up to 100 words).
