Tuesday Technical Talk: Sea Turtles in the Northeast

JULY 27, 2020 — On TUESDAY TECHNICAL TALKS with the NOAA Scientific Support Coordinator this week, Kate Sampson, the Stranding and Entanglement Coordinator for National Marine Fisheries Service Greater Atlantic Regional Fisheries Office perhaps surprised some in the Northeast with the fact that sea turtles ply these northern waters.

These animals are seldom seen by the average person as they stay at sea unless in distress in the north.  Kate added sea turtles to the consciousness of northern responders and planners and by doing so elevated their priority.
