dc.description.abstract Laboratory studies were conducted on juvenile horse mackerel to examine feeding selectivity and rates of zooplankton consumption of two size classes of fish. Fish were fed a variety of natural zooplankton assemblages and sequential subsampling of water in the experimental tanks provided estimates of prey concentration. Video observations were used to examine feeding behaviour and to investigate the feeding response of horse mackerel to various food types and prey sizes. en_ZA
