Background information and definitions
Sea turtle collisions with vessels may be avoided if animals are detected and avoidance measures are carried out by the vessel operator. Training vessel crew to detect and identify sea turtles and using dedicated observers on vessels may help avoid collisions in daylight on manoeuvrable vessels (Schoeman et al. 2020).
