Abstract
    The major reproductive effort of Lepidochelys kempi is restricted to a 17 km stretch of beach in the northwestern Gulf of Mexico, and most neonates begin the pelagic developmental stage of the life cycle here. The single point-source injection of all L. kempi hatchlings into the sea, and distributional records of where subadults assume an inshore benthic habitat, permits an hypothetical description of the relationship between oceanographic conditions and likely dispersal paths of post-hatchlings during the year or so they are "lost" at sea. The dispersal scenarios described may be of potential value in understanding the distributions and biogeographical limits of sea turtles in a general sense.
