Once the Kosgoda Turtle Hatchery opened, the hatchery began paying the fisherman for the eggs. Visitors of the hatchery can see the huge tanks filled with new born turtles. The baby turtles are fed and cared for until they are 2-4 years old. They are then taken to the sea and released during the safer hours of darkness. The main laying season is from October to April, but some eggs can be found at Kosgoda throughout the year.
