I honestly do not know but as I understand it, they taste nasty. A 
former boss and career mentor of mine was in Holland during World War 
2 and he and his family had to resort to eating things that were not 
commonly eaten, one of those things was seagull. He said that no sane 
person who wasn't starving would even consider it.
