Abstract:In July 1994 a loggerhead turtle (Caretta caretta) was released
from the central Pacific coast of the Baja California peninsula. Four hundred
and seventy-eight days later the turtle was found by a fisherman off the coast of
Kyushu, Japan. This represents a one-way transpacific migration of more than
10,000 km. This report is a reminder of the importance of international collaboration
in marine research and conservation.
