Having eaten seagull once when marooned off the coast of Korea, I can
assure you that although it served to fill the void, It was definately
not a delicacy. It tasted like raw fish, as would be expected.
I gather that seagulls (esp. those of the black-headed type) used to
be a delicacy in Britain in years gone by (I remember reading a
newspaper article many years ago in which it was mentioned that they
used to keep the gulls caged and feed them nothing but oatmeal for
several weeks in order to fatten them up and remove all traces of salt
from their flesh).
Some of the breeds are as big as chickens, they're plentiful and they
always seem to be well-fed - I'd be amazed if there were not places in
the world that still exploit the birds as a food source.
