Subject: Re: Diet data for Centrarchidae

I have done some diet work on longear sunfish.  Unfortunately, all we published was % benthic vs % pelagic prey.  Results are in:

Shoup, D.E., and Hill, L.G.  1997.  Ecomorphological diet predictions:  An assessment using inland silverside (Menidia beryllina) and longear sunfish (Lepomis megalotis) from Lake Texoma.  Hydrobiologia.  350:87-98.

Unfortunately, this project is old enough that I do not have the data in electronic form, so I can not easily calculate % diet by prey type for you.  The only other diet accounts I know of for this species are:

Applegate, R.L., Mullan, J.W., and Morais, D.I.  1966.  Food and growth of six centrarchids from shorline areas of Bull Shoals Reservoir.  Proc. Annu. Conf. Southeast. Assoc. Game Fish Comm.  20:469-482.

Mullan, J.W., and Applegate, R.L.  1967.  Centrarchid food habits in a new and old reservoir during and following bass spawning.  Proc. Annu. Conf. Southeast. Assoc. Game Fish Comm.  21:332-342.

Subject: Diet data for Centrarchidae

Greeting fish list subscribers

I am looking for data on diet of the following Centrarchidae species:

Lepomis miniatus, Lepomis megalotis, Centrarchus macropterus, and

Enneacanthus obesus. what I need is data of %individuals containing prey of

various categories (the more detailed, the better). if you are willing to

share your data or point me to a publication you are aware of, I will be

most thankful!
