A study of the food habits of some Lake Erie fish

January 1, 1963

A study of the food habits by means of stomach analyses of eight species of Lake Erie fishes was begun June 16, 1958. The species studied were smelt, yellow perch, troutperch, spottail shiner, sheepshead, yellow walleye (hereafter termed walleye), gizzard shad, and alewife. In a similar manner, stomach analyses were made of the white bass and channel catfish. Both projects were parts of a cooperative study of the life histories of Lake Erie fish.
A total of 14,118 fish stomachs were examined; the analyses of their contents are reported here.
