In this paper, the constitutive restrictions for the fluxes in a nonlocal model of superfluid turbulence are deduced from the entropy principle, using the Liu method of Lagrange multipliers. The proposed model chooses as fundamental fields the density, the velocity, the energy density, the heat flux, and the averaged vortex line length per unit volume. The onstitutive quantities are assumed to depend on the fundamental fields and on their first derivative.
