  1. Tagging location given in table. Turtles with multiple residence periods have dates in italics. Size given in cm measured as SCL-tip. MDL mean daily locations, AC activity center. Depth and distance to shore are from centroid locations. All tracks passed site fidelity with p > 99.0099. Turtles with residence periods less than 20 days were not included in site-fidelity tests. A • indicates time periods with not enough mean daily locations for KDE analysis (time periods given are from SSM results and available points may be less than predicted dates). A * after the turtle letter denotes the second tracking period for that particular individual.
