Abstract: Comparison of mark-recapture data collected using different fishing methods suggests that in the Mediterranean the interaction of sea turtles with the static net fishery is very important and comparable to other fisheries. Given the high mortality rate observed in this and other studies, static nets are likely to represent a serious threat to Mediterranean sea turtle populations.
