In 1978, the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) Galveston Laboratory initiated research involving experimental head starting (captive rearing) of Kemp's Ridley Sea Turtle (Lepidochelys kempi). Since that time, the laboratory has continued head starting, but has expanded its research on sea turtles to include a wide variety of topics, both in the field and in the laboratory. The purpose of this report is to list the citations of sea turtle publications and reports by the Galveston Laboratory to bring them to the attention of potential users and to provide information concerning how copies or reprints might be obtained. For example, NOAA Technical Memoranda in the bibliography can be obtained from the National Technical Information Service (NTIS), 5285 Port Royal Road, Springfield, VA 22161 (refer to the series number when ordering copies).
