The ingestion rates of filter-feeding gizzard shad for different sizes of suspended particles were measured using mixtures of microspheres and zooplankton. Ingestion rate increases as a function of particle size, leveling off at 60 pm. The particle-size-dependent ingestion rates were consistent with a model of filtering efficiency based on the cumulative frequency of interraker distances of gizzard shad gill rakers. Comparison of ponds containing gizzard shad with control ponds without fish… CONTINUE READING
