Lepidochelys olivacea was the most frequent sea turtle documented in the Gulf of Mannar during 2000–2001, whereas during the 1970s it was Chelonia mydas. Reduction in overall proportions of C. mydas and its size classes is attributed to exploitation of eggs, turtles, and incidental catch in fishing gear.
