Barbados lies within the belt of the North West Trade Winds and has a predominantly sub -humid tropical climate (James et al. ). Average annual temperatures ran ge from 24 - 28 °C and seasonal variations are slight. Temperatures reflect the average sea surface temperature which varies little. On average sea surface.

      The Barbados Sea Turtle Project (BSTP) was started in to promote conservation of sea turtles in Barbados. It is a joint activity of the Department of Biological and Chemical Sciences at the University of the West Indies, Cave Hill Campus and the Fisheries Division of the Government of Barbados. Eighty six species of non-air breathing fish from Panama were tested for aquatic surface respiration (ASR), a behavioral response to extreme hypoxia that involves aquatic respiration at the air-water interface. ASR was well developed in 93% and 72% of species from potentially hypoxic freshwater and marine habitats, respectively, but only 42% of species from consistently well oxygenated marine.
