Record #161705:

Crustaceans in the diet of adult common and Brünnich's guillemots Uria aalge and U. lomvia in the Barents Sea during the breeding period / Fridtjof Mehlum.

Title: Crustaceans in the diet of adult common and Brünnich's guillemots Uria aalge and U. lomvia in the Barents Sea during the breeding period / Fridtjof Mehlum.
Author(s): Mehlum, Fridtjof.
Date: 2001.
In: Marine Ornithology. (2001.), Vol. 29(1) (2001)
Abstract: Birds were collected at sea near Bear Island. Both ate mainly ephausiid Thysanoessa inermis during breeding season. Ephausiids have not been previously noted as major part of diet among common guillemots in Atlantic. Previous studies at Bear Island have found capelin as main prey fed to chicks, as optimal foraging theory would expect. Author argues that ephausiids may be solution in poor fish year where schooling fish availability fluctuates unpredictably.
