Marine Ornithology: Journal of Seabird Research and Conservation is published by the Pacific Seabird Group on behalf of a consortium of seabird groups: African, Australasian, Dutch, Japan, and Pacific. The journal is overseen by a steering committee appointed by the supporting seabird societies.

Marine Ornithology (originally named, "Cormorant") was founded by John Cooper and the African Seabird group in 1976. Since 2000, the production of the journal has been taken over by the Pacific Seabird Group, acting on behalf of the consortium of seabird groups. It is currently run by a managing editor (Louise Blight, Canada), and an Editor-in-Chief (David Ainley, USA). There is an Editorial Board of Associate Editors who represent a broad cross-section of the disciplines involved in marine bird research.

Marine Ornithology is published both in hard copy and in electronic form at this, the Marine Ornithology website. For those browsing the electronic version of the journal, papers are available in Portable Document Format (PDF) so that they can be captured as exact facsimile of the printed version for reading or printing. There is no charge for viewing or downloading papers posted by Marine Ornithology.
