Nesting European shags profit from readily accessible shoals of saithe.
Strong relations between breeding success, foraging behaviour and choice of prey among European shags.
Tourism and traffic near the breeding sites reduce seabird breeding success
According to a study from Hornøya, the effect varies among species.
Well-timed hatching may increase chick survival rates
Synchronous hatching in seabird colonies increases the defensive power against specialized predators.
