Notes on the diet of the Black-spotted Croaker (Protonibea diacanthus) across northern Australia

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This study has provided some baseline data on the diet of the Black-spotted Croaker (Protonibea diacanthus) in coastal waters off northern Australia. Black-spotted Croakers were found to be opportunistic predators, feeding on a variety of fishes and crustaceans. Larger individuals contained more fish remains, with prawns dominating the diet of smaller individuals. Seasonality of diet is suggested by the results, however a wider range of samples across all months of the year would be required to confirm this.
