The diet of hake Merluccius merluccius, one of the main demersal and commercial species in the Mediterranean Sea, was studied in the Northern-Middle Adriatic Sea during the cruises: MEDITS 2005-2006; GRUND 2005; ZTB 2005(Barbare; Pomo; Ravenna); RETI TROFICHE 2005. Specimens ranged between 53 to 670 mm TL. The diet was mainly composed of fish, particularly: Engraulis encrasicolus (54% weight), Cepola macrophthalma (18% weight), Gobius niger (4% weight), Merluccius merluccius (4% weight), crustaceans (particularly decapods). There were size and season related changes in the trophic spectrum and in the degree of stomach fullness.

Abstract

The diet of hake Merluccius merluccius, one of the main demersal and commercial species in the Mediterranean Sea, was studied in the Northern-Middle Adriatic Sea during the cruises: MEDITS 2005-2006; GRUND 2005; ZTB 2005(Barbare; Pomo; Ravenna); RETI TROFICHE 2005. Specimens ranged between 53 to 670 mm TL. The diet was mainly composed of fish, particularly: Engraulis encrasicolus (54% weight), Cepola macrophthalma (18% weight), Gobius niger (4% weight), Merluccius merluccius (4% weight), crustaceans (particularly decapods).
