Gannets are seabirds that live near coasts and islands, usually within 100 km from shore.

They are not often seen over deep oceanic waters.

There are three species of gannets, each living in a different region of the world:
  • The northern gannet is the largest seabird in the North Atlantic.
    It ranges from the eastern coast of Canada to the Gulf of Mexico, and from the coasts of Europe to northern Africa.
    The most important nesting ground for this species is the United Kingdom, with about two-thirds of the world's population.
  • The Cape gannet lives along the coast of western and southern Africa.
  • The Australasian gannet lives along the coasts of southern Australia, New Zealand, and other surrounding islands.
Gannets hunt fish by diving into the sea from a height of 30 m and pursuing their prey underwater.

Gannets are colonial breeders, nesting on isolated islands and coasts.

A gannet is a type of seabird that belongs to the family Sulidae, which also includes boobies.
There are three species of gannets: the northern gannet, the Cape gannet, and the Australasian gannet.
They are large white birds with yellowish heads, black-tipped wings and long bills.
Gannets have a wingspan of up to two metres, making them the largest seabirds in the North Atlantic.
They are expert divers and hunters, plunging into the sea from great heights to catch fish.
These birds breed in large colonies on islands and coasts, laying one blue egg that they warm with their webbed feet.

Some additional information about gannets:
  • The name "gannet" comes from Old English and means "strong or masculine".
  • The northern gannet is the most widespread and abundant species, with about two-thirds of the world’s population breeding in the United Kingdom.
  • The Cape gannet and the Australasian gannet are restricted to the temperate seas around southern Africa, southern Australia, and New Zealand.
  • These birds don't have external nostrils; they are located inside the mouth instead.
  • They also have air sacs under the skin that cushion the impact with the water.
  • Gannets can reach speeds of 100 km/h (60 mph) as they strike the water, and can dive up to 22 m (72 ft) deep.
  • They have binocular vision, which helps them judge distances accurately.
  • Gannets have a buff tinge on their head and neck that is more prominent in breeding season.
  • They take five years to reach maturity, and go through several colour changes from black to white.
