| THE great black-backed gull (larus marinus) is the largest gull in the world.
It is fairly sedentary, but some Great Black-backed Gulls move farther south or inland to large lakes or reservoirs.The Great Black-backed Gull was one of the many species originally described by Linnaeus in his 18th-century work, Systema Naturae, and it still bears its original name of Larus marinus.
Commercial egging of gulls (Great Black-backed Gulls Larus marinus and Glaucous Gulls) was allowed in spring 2009, which may give reason for some concern, but no information is available on the numbers harvested.
