Seeks food for a long time (7)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

forages

I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'seeks food' is the definition.
I can't tell whether this defines the answer.

'for a long time' is the wordplay.
'a long time' becomes 'ages' (I've seen this before).
'for'+'ages'='FORAGES'

Can you help me to learn more?

(Another definition for forages that I've seen is " Searches out food".)
