Black Amur bream (Megalobrama terminalis) is an economically important indigenous species that dominates the fish community in the lower reaches of the Pearl river. We used small subunit ribosomal DNA (18S rDNA) sequencing to assess the intestinal contents of black Amur bream at four independent developmental stages (stages II, III, IV, and V). This represents a new approach to the analysis of fish diets in the field. The results showed that Eunicida, Tubificina, unclassified Demospongiae… CONTINUE READING
