What kind of fish do puffins eat?



  1. 0 Votes

    Puffins consume mostly small fish such as herring, hake, capelin, and sand lance. It is interesting to note that Puffins get these small fish by diving into the ocean to a depth of nearly 60 meters! Since the fish that they catch are small in size, Puffins are able to carry many of them in their beaks to take back to their young who stay on land at least 45 days after birth (Peck, 2011).

    Tufted Puffins eat squids, mollusks, crustaceans, and small fish. They may regurgitate food to their young, but most bring them live fish to eat. The Atlantic Puffin eats zooplankton and fish like cod and haddock.
