    “Finding Common Ground in Fisheries Management” was a Special Session held at the 31st Annual Symposium on Sea Turtle Biology and Conservation in San Diego, California. On April 12, 2011, eight panelists of various backgrounds, expertise, and perspectives gathered together in search of pathways to common ground in fisheries bycatch management. Bycatch in fisheries is one of the many threats to sea turtles, and the development of effective management frameworks to reduce fisheries bycatch has been a primary thrust of sea turtle conservationists worldwide. Still elusive, however, is the mechanism by which the primary stakeholders can reach a common, trusting dialogue in their mutual efforts to promote responsible fisheries. The panel featured Marydele Donnelly (Sea Turtle Conservancy), Pete Dupuy (California commercial fisherman), Mark Helvey (NMFS Southwest Regional Office), Ray Hilborn (University of Washington), Steve Kennelly (New South Wales Department of Primary Industries, Australia), Sean Martin (Hawaii Longline Association), Dale Squires (NMFS Southwest Fisheries Science Center) and Todd Steiner (Turtle Island Restoration Network). The panel was moderated by Stewart Allen (NMFS Pacific Islands Fisheries Science Center). This segment is one of two segments recorded during the Special Session. The video was produced by the Western Pacific Regional Fishery Management Council under NOAA Award #NA10NMF4410219.

                Here's a low res version of our Hawaiian vacation that I was able to upload on vimeo. I made this video for Penny and I to basically relive our trip so it's kind of long. The average person will probably find many parts of the video to be long and drawn out and frankly a bit boring. This video is not for you... it's for me. However, I thought that many of you may want to watch it anyway so I went ahead and uploaded it. I hope you enjoy it as much as we have. This is basically a first draft. I'm sure after messing with it for a while it will change drastically but for now this is what I have.

                  The Green Turtle (Chelonia mydas) and the Olive Ridley (Lepidochelys olivacea) are two of the seven species of sea turtles in the world that nest at the beaches of Pakistan every year. For over a 100 million years of the earth's history, sea turtles have made the oceans their home. They are a species so ancient they have seen the dinosaurs evolve and go extinct. The sandy beaches of Sindh and Baluchistan are important nesting sites for sea turtles. Spending most of their lives in the oceans, adult turtles return to the beach where they were born to lay their eggs. After an incubation period of about two months the youngsters hatch and scramble towards the water. Only one in a thousand survive to adulthood. The main threats to their survival are pollution, loss of nesting and foraging habitats, poaching, predation, being hit by boats and getting caught in fishing nets. The Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species has classified six of the seven sea turtle species in the world as endangered or critically endangered and forbids their exploitation by international law. In order to celebrate sea turtles and to promote conservation efforts, 2006 was declared as the Year of the Turtle in the Indian Ocean and South-East Asian Region. In 2008, Sea Turtles was nominated for a 22nd Genesis Award in the Brigitte Bardot International category for "its excellent depiction of the perils facing the endangered sea turtles of Pakistan and the efforts being made to save them". The Genesis Awards are held each year by the Humane Society of the United States to recognize "television, film, music, and other special categories for raising awareness of animal topics".

                    In HD: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8GaZ4cFO2nw Sea turtles have experienced global warming twice, and they are now returning to the Eastern shores of Canada, pushing into the North Atlantic as the oceans are warming...again. In Becoming Myth, while I tried mostly to focus on the wonder of marine turtles, I swiftly realized how hard they were to find. A ubiquitous symbol for this planet in N.America, Japan, China, India, & Indonesia, this isn't the kind of animal we want disappearing on us. Written, shot, & edited, by David Arthur 2007-2011
