The great cormorant, known as the black shag in New Zealand and formerly also known as the great black cormorant across the Northern Hemisphere, the black cormorant in Australia, and the large cormorant in India, is a widespread member of the cormorant family of seabirds.
Prey include sculpins, rock gunnel, pollock, cunner, mummichog, Atlantic cod, winter flounder and other flatfishes, and tautog. They also take schooling fish such as sandlance and capelin, and small crustaceans such as crab (though these smaller items could be prey taken by the fish the cormorants have eaten). They are not good to eat because of their fishy diet.
