  • Studies on feeding selectivity in Antarctic fish with comparison between diet organisms and those available in the wild are scarce. We explored this issue in Notothenia rossii (NOR) and N. coriiceps (NOC) at Potter Cove in summer 2016 to test: (1) their preference among different benthic groups, primarily species of algae and amphipods and (2) differences between these nototheniids given their distinct morphology but their known similar general ecology in the fjords. The methodology included a… CONTINUE READING
