Carbon stable isotope signatures can effectively trace food sources, elucidate trophic interactions, and presumably reflect food web structure. The present study conducted a dietswitch experiment using freshwater teleost grass carp Ctenopharyngodon idella cultured for 3 mo with artificial feed that had a distinct carbon stable isotope composition. Turnover and fractionation of carbon stable isotopes were determined based on the proportional contributions of metabolism and growth to the isotopic… CONTINUE READING
