This is a very common and widespread bird species. It feeds on the sea, in estuaries, and on freshwater lakes and rivers. Northern birds migrate south and winter along any coast that is well-supplied with fish. The type subspecies, P. c. carbo, is found mainly in Atlantic waters and nearby inland areas: on western European coasts and south to North Africa, the Faroe Islands, Iceland and Greenland; and on the eastern seaboard of North America, though in America it breeds only in the north of its range, in the Canadian maritime provinces.

Esta é uma espécie de ave muito comum e generalizada. Alimenta-se do mar, em estuários e em lagos de água doce e rios. Aves do norte migram para o sul no inverno ao longo da costa. A subespécie tipo, P. c. carbo, é encontrada principalmente nas águas do Atlântico e áreas interiores próximos: costas da Europa Ocidental. do Sul e do Norte de África, Ilhas Faroe, Islândia e Groenlândia, e na costa leste da América do Norte, embora na América ele se reproduz apenas no norte e nas províncias marítimas canadenses.
