  • Stomach content analysis of the silver pomfret, Parnpus argenteus using the Index of Relative Importance (IRI) revealed that crustaceans (IRI= 48.2%) and semi-digested pulp (IRI= 47.6%) formed the important diet. Copepods formed the largest propartion among crustaceans. Proportion of empty stomachs was higher in large fishes and the diet changed with body size as well as with season. Fishes in smaller length group (<I40 mm) had semi-digested pulp as the dominant component, whereas fishes… CONTINUE READING
