The court was hearing on Tuesday the PIL it had registered suo motu on February 23 on the high mortality rate of Olive Ridley turtles on the Odisha coast.
A female turtle usually lays around 80 to 100 eggs, said divisional forest officer (DFO) of Bhitarkanika Bikash Ranjan Dash.
While the major nesting sites of Olive Ridley turtles are well identified and managed, sites where turtles make sporadic visits are often overlooked.
The committee stated in its report that upon release, the trawlers and boats commit similar offences again during the season.
