Stable isotope analysis of the potential prey and predator can be combined with gut content analysis to quantify the diet. This dietary knowledge allows the quantitative assessment of the role of key species in energy and contaminant transfer, their impact on prey communities, and their susceptibility to perturbation. The diet of Mysis relicta was examined in Lake Ontario in spring, summer, and autumn using both techniques. Mysids fed on the bottom during the day and in the pelagia and on the… CONTINUE READING
