The food sources of 14 benthic consumer species (polychaetes, bivalves, amphipods and decapods) were investigated at 2 locations in a brackish lagoon (Gamo Lagoon, Japan) using carbon and nitrogen stable isotope ratios. Consumer diets were elucidated from the δ 13 C values of food sources, including riverine and terrestrial materials (< -25.6‰), autochthonous particulate organic matter (POM, -23.6‰), the macroalga Gracilaria vermiculophylla (-20.4‰), marine POM (-19.9‰), benthic and epiphytic… CONTINUE READING
