Trophic interactions of chaetognaths, larval fish, and zooplankton in the South Atlantic Bight
It is concluded that chaetognaths were not Important predators ot flsh larvae during t h ~ s tudy, but may, at times, consume substantial amounts of the copepod populatlons which are shared by fish larvae. Expand
Chaetognaths of the United States South Atlantic Bight: Distribution, abundance and potential interactions with newly spawned larval fish
The observed abundance and distribution data indicate that wintertime chaetognath populations in offshore waters of Onslow Bay, North Carolina have the potential to interact with recently spawned larval fish and may simultaneously act as competitors, predators, or prey. Expand

The diet of all chaetognath species found in a broad pelagic area of the eastern Mediterranean was investigated through gut content analysis. Eight chaetognath species were recovered from four depthExpand
Distribution and trophic ecology of chaetognaths in the western Mediterranean in relation to an inshore–offshore gradient
The distribution patterns and feeding ecology of chaetognaths in the Catalan Sea in relation to mesoscale features along an inshore-offshore gradient were examined andTrophic niche breadth appeared to be constant with growth. Expand
Feeding of Carnivorous Zooplankton, Chaetognaths in the Pacific
The phylum chaetognatha consists of some 100 species arranged in 22 genera and has been estimated as 10–30 per cent of that of copepods in the world oceans, so that they are of great significance. Expand
Notes on feeding of Chaetognatha in Guanabara Bay, Brazil
A preliminary analysis, by means of the gut content, of the diet of Sagitta friderid and Sagitta enflata occurring in Guanabara Bay was carried out, finding that adults of S.friderici and S.enflata seem to have food requirements different from juveniles: adults fed on other items, and the food containing ratio (FCR) was higher in indi- viduals of stage III.

The diets of the chaetognaths Sagitta enflata, S. serratodentata atlantica and S. bipunctata at different seasons in Eastern Mediterranean coastal waters
Gut content analysis showed that copepods were the predominant food organisms in the diet of these three predators and Cannibalism was observed mainly in S. bipunctata while S. serratodentata atlantica was found to be less cannibalistic. Expand
Vertical distribution of pelagic chaetognaths and feeding of Sagitta enflata in the Central Equatorial Pacific
The vertical distribution and feeding of pelagic chaetognaths at 5°S, 160°W in the Central Equatorial Pacific were investigated using a series of 0-500 m vertical hauls with a VMPS net over a 24 hExpand
The distribution and abundance of copepods in relation to the physical structure of the Gulf Stream
Abstract The horizontal and vertical distributions of selected copepod species across the Gulf Stream in September 1982 were investigated along a transect east of Cape Hatteras where the Stream turnsExpand
