If it's sustainable take... not a problem at all. If it's released by USFW... it is legal take. There are populations of turtles in the US that should be culled due to habitat fragmentation and lack of predation.

As far as I know turtle take in the us is heavily regulated and controlled thoughout the country. There are also farms trying to supply the market but is being met with misplaced bunny hugger resistance.
