dc.description.abstract This is the first biological study of four endemic catshark species, Haploblepharus edwardsii, H. pictus, Poroderma africanum and P. pantherinum, from the southwestern Cape. Diets of two hundred and forty-one specimens were examined via stomach contents. Prey were sorted and identified to the lowest possible taxon. An Index of Relative Importance (IRI = %F(%N + % V) was used to determine the importance of prey items in the catsharks' diets. en_ZA
