Abstract: After hatching, loggerhead sea turtles (Caretta caretta) enter in the sea and start the ocean phase of their lives, where juveniles inhabit pelagic feeding areas during 6-12 years. In the Atlantic Ocean, the central and the eastern feeding grounds harbor loggerhead juveniles from different nesting populations, constituting the designated mixed stocks. We studied the distribution of juveniles in the Eastern Atlantic comparing mtDNA sequences from canarian individuals with samples from Azores, Madeira and the Atlantic coast of Andalusia.
