Hard-to-swallow hooks saving turtles

A fisherman measures a Ridley turtle caught off Costa Rica's Pacific coast in Puntarenas, the west of the capital San Jose, November 12, 2007. The turtle was returned alive to the sea because of an innovative hook being introduced to long-line fish fleets to reduce the by-catch of turtles, birds and marine mammals.
