Abstract:
Hematologic and biochemistry ranges were established for 31 clinically healthy green sea turtles (Chelonia mydas) incidentally captured in artisanal fisheries in Sechura Bay, Peru. Postcapture stress may have influenced heterophil values and glucose concentration. Sechura Bay provides abundant dietary protein affecting urea and glucose values.
