Tagging Program (CMTTP)
Cooperative Marine Turtle Tagging Program
The Archie Carr Center for Sea Turtle Research (ACCSTR), with funding from the National Marine Fisheries Service Southeast Fisheries Science Center, coordinates a centralized program to distribute sea turtle tags, manage tagging data, and facilitate exchange of tag information. CMTTP tags are only available for projects conducted in the Atlantic Region.
