Summary
Abstract: Four female and one male black-footed albatross (Phoebastria nigripes) were tracked using satellite telemetry during their post-breeding summer dispersal (July ? September, 1997?1999). The females were tracked using transmitters that operated continuously, and the male was tracked using a duty-cycled transmitter programmed to transmit on 7-day ON:OFF cycles.

Purpose: Albatross movements and foraging grounds during the post-breeding dispersal are poorly understood, despite their important conservation implications. We tracked four female black-footed albatross (Phoebastria nigripes) for 100 days during their summer (July-September, 1997-1999) post-breeding dispersal off California, and compared their movements to the distribution of fishing effort from the ...
