Sulidae  

Morus capensis (VAG)   : breeds on the coast of southern Africa and in Namibia. It overwinters along the African coast west to the Gulf of Guinea,in eastern Mozambique, and exceptionally as far as Kenya. Most adult individuals remain in the waters close to the colony after breeding. Young individuals migrate north to the Gulf of Guinea ( Carboneras, 1992). The species occurs occasionally in Brazil outside the coast of RS ( Vooren, 2004) and SC ( Olmos, 1997).

Morus serrator (VAG)   : breeds in the east coast of Australia, Tasmania and New Zealand and there is also a small colony on Norfolk Island. It overwinters in waters adjacent to the east coast and in western Australia. Adults remain in areas around the colony, while immature individuals are more dispersive ( Carboneras, 1992). There is only one documented record in the country for the Moleques do Sul Islands / SC ( Bege & Pauli,1989; MNRJ 36164 View Materials [ SC, 1987, June])   .
