Abstract A recent exchange in MEPS between some eminent marine turtle ecologists (Chaloupka et al. 2004b, Hays et al. 2004), which centred on the methodology of estimating fisheries-related mortality (FRM) of marine turtles (Hays et al. 2003, Chaloupka et al. 2004a), has provided readers with some interesting points for discussion. Hays et al. (2003) started the ball rolling by attempting to provide a global estimate of FRM by examining the fate of satellite-tracked individuals from 3 different species. Chaloupka et al. (2004a) then provided a detailed analysis of the fate of loggerhead turtles tracked using satellite telemetry following their capture and subsequent release during pelagic longline fishing operations. In their discussion, the latter devoted a large section outlining their opinion that the estimates provided by Hays et al. (2003) were flawed. The arguments continued in a Comment by Hays et al. (2004) and a Reply Comment by Chaloupka et al. (2004b).
