We determined the fat content and fatty acid composition of 26 species of fish and inver- tebrates (n = 1153) that are primary forage species of piscivorous seabirds and marine mammals in Prince William Sound (PWS), Alaska. Flatfish, shrimps and octopus had the lowest average fat con- tents (~1.0%), although some cods, as well as juvenile walleye pollock Theragra chalcogramma, Pacific herring Clupea harengus pallasi and pink salmon Oncorhynchus gorbuscha also ranged as low as 0.5 to 0.7% fat… CONTINUE READING
