Marine turtles long have been o f great value to peoples of the Indian Ocean, nutritionally, economically, and culturally. Once directed primarily toward subsistence, the hunting of marine turtles for international trade has increased; today their populations are often so depleted that they are not only insignificant as resources, but are endangered. An understanding o f exploitation is imperative to guarantee future populations, yet available information is sketchy. "Subsistence hunting "is an ambiguous term, since the most intense exploitation is for export.
