The breeding success of Puffins Fratercula arctica, and the quality and quantity of food brought to their chicks were studied at 12 colonies along the coast of Norway in 1980-1983. In the north and south of the country, breeding success was good while, prior to 1983, it was poor or a total failure at colonies in the central region. Evidence which suggests a direct relationship between the level of Herring Clupea harengus stocks and the breeding success of Puffins at the latter colonies is presented.
