Seabirds bioaccumulate contaminants from prey, transport them to their nesting sites, and deposit them in their excreta and carcasses, thereby focusing marine-derived contaminants into remote, terrestrial receptor sites.

Atlantic Coast Joint Venture. U.S. Minerals Management Service. Environmental Studies Program. National Marine Fisheries Service. About this book. Originally published in , this book is concerned with the ways in which seabirds function as predators in the marine environment; in particular about how they find and catch food and how much of it they consume. Nevertheless, an assessment can be made on the basis of knowledge of seabird ecology and inference of the effects of these devices on the physical environment and on lower trophic level organisms i.e. prey of seabirds (WWT Consulting, ; ABP Marine Environmental Research, ).

We conduct surveys for seabirds from the bridge of the research vessel during daylight hours.

The government alone cannot sustain healthy oceans. It takes stewardship and community involvement in order to combat today’s pressures on our marine ecosystems. The Greater Farallones National Marine Sanctuary uses seabirds as sentinel indicators of the health of our coastal ecosystem, through long-term monitoring of live and dead seabirds.   Seabird conservation status, threats and priority actions: a global assessment - Volume 22 Issue 1 - JOHN P.

These Seabird Solutions Trust factsheets offer students an opportunity to explore the lives of seabirds. There are also lesson plans for teachers. Students will investigate the impact humans have on the ecology of seabirds, and the role seabirds play in their environment. Download the resource. Seabirds - lesson plans (PDF, K).

Australia State of the Environment has been prepared by independent experts using the best available information to support assessments of environmental condition, pressures, management effectiveness, resilience, risks and outlook.

The WERC seabird studies team evaluated several previous assessment in the Atlantic and devised a framework to quantify and compare seabird vulnerability information and then used this framework to quantify vulnerability for 81 species in the POCS.

The framework is designed to easily incorporate new seabird data as these become available. survival of these seabirds, integrated with knowledge of food resources and the marine environ-ment, can be used to assess the status and health of the Gulf of the Farallones marine ecosystem.

As part of the AMLR Program’s predator studies, seabird research at both field stations concentrates on the interactions between seabirds, their primary prey (Antarctic krill) and fishing activities.

Inthe year of the first (but incomplete) monitoring of seabird captures across the CCAMLR area (), an estimated birds were killed in two main areas, around South Georgia (CCAMLR area ) and around the Prince Edward Islands (CCAMLR areas and ).Continued improvement in bycatch statistics has been achieved throughout the year period to when, for these areas, two Cited by:.
