In present study biometry investigation and inbreeding situation of hawksbill turtle in Naiband protected area during 2013-2014 investigated. During the study, 26 turtles biometry and tagged. The results showed that the mean weight was 40.7±4.2 Kg, CCL was 72.757±4.7 cm and CCW was 66.303±2.6 cm, mean of total number eggs was 91.043±10.8, the mean of normal eggs was 76±8.3, the mean of abnormal eggs was 11.65±8.2, the mean of egg diameter was 35.5±1.1 mm and the mean of egg weight was 30.8±1.7 g. By comparing biological factors in Naiband area with other laying areas in all over the world showed that the hawksbill turtle in the study area are smaller and lighter than others in the world. But diameter and weight of eggs are different with others in the world. The mean of total number eggs in study area was more than other coastal in Persian Gulf but less than global mean.
