Summary
Abstract: Satellite telemetry was used to identify the foraging distributions
of two congeneric species of albatrosses that nest in the tropics / subtropics.
Breeding Black-footed albatross (Phoebastria nigripes) and Laysan albatross
(Phoebastria immutabilis) nesting in Tern Island (Northwest Hawaiian Islands)
and tracked during the 1998 breeding season (January - June) performed foraging
trips to ... View entire text

Purpose: The analysis of albatross movement patterns showed that the core
feeding areas during long trips were located over the continental shelves of
North America, from California to the Aleutians. An understanding on the
foraging biology of North Pacific albatrosses has important implications for
assessing their bycatch risk in commercial fisheries.
