SEAPOP has covered the breeding populations of seabirds with total mapping on Svalbard and Jan Mayen and along the coast of the Norwegian mainland. You can see the breeding distribution of the different species by defined searches in the data portal.

Selected species

The table contains links to ready-made searches in the data portal, where nationwide coverage of distribution data is generated for estimated breeding populations of the species in question. In the data portal, you choose if you want the search results in a table, graph, or map. The data portal can also generate maps for other species, but currently only for smaller parts of the country at a time. Learn more about how to use the data portal!
