Abstract: 

The primary purpose of these guidelines is to assist those actively engaged in snake harvest and trade situations, who are faced with the need to implement monitoring and management. It is written for government wildlife managers, conservationists, professional scientists, and amateurs interested in ensuring the sustainable utilization of wildcaught snakes in commercial trade. This guidance for harvest monitoring may be particularly applicable in situations where implementing other monitoring strategies is not feasible. This publication is meant to be practical and offers a step-by-step guide to collecting data from wild-harvested snakes that is useful for the assessment of sustainability.
