Feeding activity pattern and food intake of the crab Cancer polyodon were determined from crab stomach samples taken at 3 to 4 h intervals on 2 days per season in 1988 and 1989. The gross growth efficiency (K,) and the ecological (= population production) efficiency (EE) were calculated in conjunction with growth and production data from a previous study. C. polyodon feeds at night and to a lesser extent during the day. Feeding chronology differed markedly among seasons: in winter, night… CONTINUE READING
