In this study, we assess the feeding niche, diet overlap, and prey selectivity of sticklebacks, herring Clupea harengusand sprat Sprattus sprattus in an area of the southwest Baltic Sea Kalmar Sound in relation to the seasonal abundance of zooplanktonic prey during — Santhamma Varghese are gratefully acknowledged.

A total of 36 different prey taxa was observed in the subsample of ABFT stomachs analyzed further for species composition: The offshore waters south of Iceland were poorly explored and not exploited for ABFT during the period of large scale tuna fisheries in northern Europe in the last century.
Full statistical results for quantile and ordinary least squares regression analyses for these data are shown in Annex 4. We then repeated this two-step analysis for occurrence and prey weight in stomachs for the three most frequent prey species by occurrence and weight European flying squid, gonate squid, barracudinas.
The results from the Iceland Basin differ however from studies on similarly sized ABFT from summer and autumn feeding areas in neritic zones in the North Atlantic where the diet consisted mainly of sublittoral and epipelagic species e.Citation: Olafsdottir D, MacKenzie BR, Chosson-P V and Ingimundardottir T () Dietary Evidence of Mesopelagic and Pelagic Foraging by Atlantic Bluefin Tuna (Thunnus thynnus L.) during Autumn Migrations to the Iceland elbfrollein.com by: 2.
Abstract. Pelagic fish populations in the upper San Francisco Estuary have experienced significant declines since the turn of the century; a pattern known as the pelagic organism decline (POD).Cited by: 1.
Due to the lack of specific diet tissue discrimination factors associated with trophic transfers (Δδ 15 N) for the species studied in the present study, we used a conventional Δδ 15 N of to keep our results comparable with previous works in the northwestern Mediterranean Sea (e.g., Polunin et al.,Valls et al.,Costalago et al., ).Cited by: 5.
AbstractWe evaluated diet niche width, individual diet specialization, and diet composition in six lake populations of Brook Trout Salvelinus fontinalis, a generalist predator known to exhibit benthic and pelagic trophic specialization.
Population diet niche width was broad and similar across all lakes, contrasting with that of individual fish, which exhibited specialized diets in comparison Author: Kurt J.
