    Hawksbill Turtles in Peruvian Coastal Fisheries.

    In the Eastern Pacific Ocean (EP), the hawksbill turtle Eretmochelys imbricata has been reported as once ‘common’ from Mexico to Ecuador, but today is extremely rare (Seminoff et al. 2003; Gaos et al. 2006; Mortimer & Donnelly 2008). In the southeast Pacific, this species has been reported but is not common (Hays-Brown & Brown 1982; Aranda & Chandler 1989; Pitman 1990) and has been documented using the region for both nesting (Green & Ortiz-Crespo 1982) and foraging (Hays-Brown & Brown 1982). In Peru, hawksbill turtles have been reported from Punta Malpelo (3°30’S, 80°27’W) in the north (Carillo 1987) to Pisco (13˚44’S, 76˚14’W) in the south (Aranda & Chandler 1989) (Figure 1). Since the latter, there have been no subsequent reports of the species in Pisco (ACOREMA 2000; this study). There are no reports of the species in Chile (Frazier & Salas 1982; Chandler 1991), thus Peruvian waters appear to demarcate the southernmost limit of distribution for hawksbill turtles in the EP.
