Observations of feeding behavior demonstrated that Engraulis mordax captures food by two distinctly different kinds of attack—biting and filtering. Artemia adults in high concentration evoke a biting attack and Artemia nauplii in high concentration evoke a filtering attack.Feeding trials with Artemia adults produced the equation w = 18.1 T0.359 W1.138, where w is weight of food consumed in milligrams, T is time in minutes, and W is fish weight in grams. Density had no effect over the range of 1… Expand
