Supplemental Information
Oral cavity morphometry data from loggerheads are used to investigate the behavioral and physiological characteristics of incidental capture interactions in longline fisheries to inform management and for peer-reviewed publication.

Captive reared sea turtles were from the NOAA NMFS Southeast Fisheries Science Center Galveston TX Laboratory facility.
