We utilized a long-term data base collected over a broad geographic range to examine predator size prey size relationships for 18 species of marine fish predators from continental shelf waters off the northeast US coast. Regression analysis was used to illustrate interspecific variation in ontogenetic patterns of prey size use, gape allometries, and ratio-based trophic niche breadths. Sizebased feeding strategies were assessed through comparison of frequency distributions of relative prey sizes… CONTINUE READING
