The Black guillemot – an opportunist with a taste for fish and crustaceans
Studying seabird diet may warn us about ongoing changes below the sea surface.
The subpolar gyre (SPG): a promising index for ecosystem change in the North Atlantic
New research demonstrates links between large ocean currents and seabird population size and survival rates.
Report from the key sites in 2016
No improvement in either population development or breeding success. Detailed results from the seabird monitoring work on SEAPOP’s key sites in 2016 are presented in a new report.

Anyone who has experienced the swarms of seabirds near the bird cliffs along the Norwegian coast in the summer may well wonder where the birds go after the breeding season, leaving the cliffs empty and silent through the winter. We can now show you, based on data from the world's largest international light logger project on seabirds.
