Well-timed hatching may increase chick survival rates
Synchronous hatching in seabird colonies increases the defensive power against specialized predators.
PhD on seabird migration patterns based on SEATRACK data
- With young scientists like Benjamin on the team, the future looks bright for seabird research.
Report from SEAPOP’s key sites in 2018
Presenting detailed estimates of the most important monitoring parameters from 14 locations.
Will scare seabirds from drowning
A new study reveals that between 4 000 and 8 000 seabirds probably drown each year in connection with the coastal gillnet-fisheries in Norway. Researchers suggest scaring the birds as a possible measure for reducing the number of deaths.
SEATRACK moves into a second phase
SEATRACK plans to include new colonies and to deploy GLS-loggers on juvenile birds to deliver data of even higher accuracy and quality.
The SEATRACK web app has been updated
Loggerdata from 2018 have been added to the SEATRACK web app.

First estimates of body mass change between the breeding and wintering stages in Atlantic Puffins
Presents critical information for improving predictions of the effects of extreme weather events on the species.
The concentration of contaminants in great skuas is determined mainly by choice of prey
New research reveals that diet specialization in Arctic seabirds is more important for exposure to contaminants than wintering area or long-range transport.
