Since 2000 we have used artisanal fishing operations as an opportunistic platform for inwater studies of marine megafauna, including sea turtles. We present data on loggerhead turtles Caretta caretta incidentally captured by artisanal longline and gillnet fisheries activities operating from 7 ports along the coast of Peru. Data on location, body size and apparent maturity class of loggerheads were gathered. A total of 323 loggerhead turtle captures were recorded between latitudes 13 and 22°S indoi:10.3354/esr00142 fatcat:ppqzjocoxfdxpiefsfolfhs7ii
