Abstract

Feeding habits of Lateolabrax Japonicus collected from the eelgrass bed in Kwangyang Bay from January 1994 to December 1994 were studied. L. Japonicus was a carnivore which consumed mainly amphipods (gammarid amphipods and caprellid amphipods), crabs, caridean shrimps and copepods. Its diets included small quantities of fishes, mysids, polychaetes, tanaids and isopods. Three distinct ontogenetic feeding groups were noted : (1) 1~2 cm SL individuals preyed heavily on copepods. (2) 2~15 cm SL individuals preyed heavily on amphipods. (3) individuals over 15 cm SL preyed heavily on crabs, caridean shrimps and fishes. L. Japonicus showed seasonal changes in prey composition. These changes were not caused by seasonal changes in food availability, but by changes in the size composition of L. Japonicus occurred in the eelgrass bed.
