black-browed Albatross, Thalassarche melanophrys, Antarctic Peninsular

Year: 2011
From collection: Antarctic biodiversity
Taken by: Peter Prokosch
The Black-browed Albatross or Black-browed Mollymawk, Thalassarche melanophrys, is a large seabird of the albatross family Diomedeidae, and it is the most widespread and common albatross. Declines may be attributable to increased longline fishing effort and/or the development of new longline fisheries over much of the Patagonian Shelf, around South Georgia, off the southern African coast, and in the Southern Ocean.
