Sea turtles and BWH...

We have all no doubt seen sea turtles while blue water hunting and been probably mesmerized by observing these antedeluvian animals.
Obviously these reptilians do not get usually speared by divers, but because of alleged healing or nutritive properties, they are unfortunately highly coveted in many places on the Blue Planet.
Probably because of the fact that turtle as a symbol features high in different myths and most of the time symbolizes the earth from the very beginning.
Turtle scaled finally got protected by the 1973 Washington convention and is considered now as an andangered species…
During my recent bwh stay in Cuba/ Archpiellagio De Los Canareos, I could by chance observe scores of giant green and loggerhead turtles coming every night ashore to lay their eggs.
There the laying season lasts about two months and they have been using since the dawn of times to lay about hundred fifty eggs every ten days in the sand of the beach.
Each turtle weight about 500 to 800 lbs and do laying pretty close to each other, so that the birds will get confused at the time several hundred little turtles go to the sea after the batching…
Encountering a turtle in the blue of the deep sea is often a brief experience : as soon as you try to get close, they take off. A turtle can dive beyond the human freediving skills to seventy meters depth and breath hold about thirty minutes!

Re: Sea turtles and BWH...

Sometimes we have unfortunately to see exhausted turtles dying on the surface, while they are wresling with difficulties. For example, at the time they get entangled in a piece of net, or in a crate, or hooked by a fishing line...
The agony may last several days or weeks and the turtle will become itself a natural fishing attractive device! Followed by a little school made of tiny fish swimming just under the surface, the turtle do tysing patrolling pelagics such as dorado, wahoo, marlin, sailfish..
A rare opportunity for the spearo to naturally hunt pelagics and to say a goodbye to these amazing harmless and tireless sea wanderers…
Any experience to share about these diving buddies?
