Biology

Salvin's albatross is thought to breed annually, with adults returning to their breeding colonies in September, where nests are densely constructed in close proximity (one nest per 1.9m²). Eggs are laid in early October and begin to hatch in early to mid-November, with the chicks fledging the following spring in late March to early April (4). Breeding adults forage over the shelf waters around the colonies (4), and feed mainly on fish and squid (2).
