Abstract: Deliberate take of marine turtles and their eggs occurs worldwide. Turtle meat and eggs may constitute a seasonal protein source in some developing countries. The shells, the stuffed bodies and other by-products are often destined for the tourist trade. This activity has been known in Cape Verde for a long time; fishermen catch turtles in the sea, though it is on the beaches where the number of captures is much higher. </p>
