The understanding of developmental and reproductive migrations of sea turtles is essential for effective protection and conservation efforts. Flipper tags remain a valuable method for detecting movements and migrations because they are cost-effective and conspicuous, allowing the detection of a tagged animal by any person worldwide. Here we report 13 flipper-tag recoveries for Brazilian hawksbill (Eretmochelys imbricata) turtles that augment the body ofinformation on the migratory nature of this species and provide new growth-rate data.
