Summary The individual foraging behaviour of Australasian gannets (Morus serrator) was studied using GPS and time-depth recorders. Gannets were found to forage at average maximum distances of 49 km (± 39 km) from the colony, with total foraging path lengths of 143 km (± 108 km) and foraging trip durations of 13.9 h (± 11 h). During foraging trips gannets spent on average 48.7% (± 17.6) of the time flying and made 37 (± 30.4) dives per trip, with an average maximum depth of 3.6 m (± 1 m). However, considerable variation in individual foraging strategies were recorded and these will be discussed in relation to individuals age, breeding experience and sex.
