  • Authors: Mark A. Baran and Michael G. Harvey

Priorities for Future Research

In view of the trend towards long-term population declines in Guanay Cormorant, continued monitoring of population trends is warranted. That said, there is insufficient information about the breeding ecology of the Guanay Cormorant, despite years of study of population changes. There also could be more attention paid to the level of human consumption of the Guanay.
