Titre Feeding ecology and ontogenetic dietary shift of yellowstripe goatfish Mulloidichthys flavolineatus (Mullidae) at Reunion Island, SW Indian Ocean Type Article scientifique
Année 2009 Publication Revue Abrégée Marine Ecology – Progress Series
Volume 386 Numéro Pages 181-195
Mots-Clés isotopes; Mixing model; Ontogenetic diet shift; Southwestern Indian Ocean; Stable; Stomach contents; Yellowstripe goatfish
Résumé We analyzed stomach contents and muscle isotopic composition (delta C-13, delta N-15) of yellowstripe goatfish Mulloidichthys flavolineatus from a coral reef to investigate size-related dietary changes and resource or habitat partitioning. Juveniles (< 12 cm total length [TL]), young adults (12 <= TL < 17 cm) and adults (>= 17 cm TL) showed a high diet overlap, especially between juveniles and young adults. According to stomach contents analysis, M. flavolineatus widens its prey spectrum with increasing size from a common prey pool that includes polychaetes, tanaids and harpacticoid copepods. We observed a significant increase in delta C-13 values (from -17.1 +/- 0.5 parts per thousand for juveniles to -10.7 +/- 0.8 parts per thousand for adults), which were correlated to fish size. Adults (delta N-15 mean of 11.1 +/- 1.8 parts per thousand) were one trophic level above juveniles and young adults (7.7 +/- 0.5 and 7.4 +/- 0.5 parts per thousand, respectively). These patterns of isotopic changes confirmed ontogenetic dietary shifts. However, trophodynamics can be influenced by physiological factors such as growth and sexual maturity. M flavolineatus shift from a pelagic to a macrobenthic diet, which is equilibrated at the adult stage. Results from combined stomach contents (prey volume) and stable isotope analyses suggested a dominant contribution of polychaetes (macrofauna), possibly through selective feeding. Conversely, on the basis of prey volume and stable isotope data, meiofauna did not feature significantly in the diet despite their high abundance in stomachs. Two adult groups were distinguished based on their delta N-15 values (11.9 +/- 0.8 and 7.8 +/- 0.6 parts per thousand), indicating possible stage-specific partitioning in habitat use inside the reef.

Titre Trophic niche overlap of sprat and commercial small pelagic teleosts in the Gulf of Lions (NW Mediterranean Sea) Type Article scientifique
Année 2015 Publication Journal of Sea Research Revue Abrégée
Volume Numéro Pages
Mots-Clés Anchovies; Sardines; Sprats; North-western Mediterranean sea; Stomach contents; Stable isotopes
Résumé Increasing abundance of non-commercial sprats and decreasing biomass and landings of commercial anchovies and sardines justify the need to study the feeding ecology and trophic niche overlap of these planktivorous species in the Gulf of Lions. Their diet has been investigated on the basis of stomach content and stable isotope analyses in 2011 and 2012 according to different depths and regions in the study area. The main prey were Corycaeidae copepods, Clauso/Paracalanus, Euterpina acutifrons and Microsetella, for sprats and small copepods, such as Microsetella, Oncaea and Corycaeidae, for anchovies and sardines. This is the first time that the diet of sprats is described in the Gulf of Lions. Sprats fed on a larger size spectrum of prey and seem to be more generalist feeders compared to anchovies and sardines. Ontogenetic changes as well as spatial and temporal variations of the diet occurred in the three species. Stable isotope analysis revealed mobility of sardines and sprats among feeding areas while anchovies exhibited preferred feeding areas. Sprats showed a higher relative condition assessed by C/N ratios than sardines and anchovies. Our results showed an overlap of the trophic niches for the three species, indicating a potential trophic competition in the Gulf of Lions.

Titre Feeding ecology of two demersal opportunistic predators coexisting in the northwestern Mediterranean Sea Type Article scientifique
Année 2016 Publication Revue Abrégée Estuar. Coast. Shelf Sci.
Volume 175 Numéro Pages 15-23
Mots-Clés abundance; anglerfish lophius-budegassa; Black anglerfish; communities; diet; fish; habits; linnaeus; Lophius budegassa; Lophius piscatorius; osteichthyes; piscatorius; Spatial distributions; Stable isotopes; Stomach contents; Trophic ecology; White anglerfish
Résumé The study of the feeding ecology of marine organisms is crucial to understanding their ecological roles and advancing our knowledge of marine ecosystem functioning. The aim of this study was to analyse the trophic ecology of two demersal predator species, black anglerfish (Lophius budegassa) and white anglerfish (L. piscatorius), in the northwestern Mediterranean Sea. Both species are important in the study area due to their high abundance and economic value, but information about their feeding behaviour is scarce. Here, we described the diet composition and ecological role of these two species, investigating whether trophic segregation exists between them and amongst fish of different sizes. In addition, by using experimental survey data we described the spatial distribution of both species to help us interpret trophic behaviour patterns. We gathered samples of two different sizes (small individuals of a total length <30 cm and large individuals >= 30 cm) of both species and combined stomach content analyses (SCA) and stable isotope analyses (SIA) of nitrogen and carbon with isotopic mixing models. Our results revealed that both anglerfish species are opportunistic predators, showing a diet composed mainly of fishes and, to a lesser extent, of crustaceans, with a small proportion of cephalopods, gastropods, bivalves and echinoderms. We found trophic segregation between the two species and the two sizes, indicating that they feed on different prey, in line with differences in their spatial distribution within the study area. This partial partition of food resources could also be explained by the differences in rhythms of activity that were reported in previous studies. In addition, although both species occupied a high position within the food web, our results showed that white anglerfish individuals and the large-sized fish of both species held higher trophic positions. This study demonstrates the usefulness of complementary approaches for trophic studies and confirms that both anglerfish species play an important role as predators in the northwestern Mediterranean Sea food web.

Titre Feeding habits and food partitioning between three commercial fish associated with artificial reefs in a tropical coastal environment Type Article scientifique
Année 2013 Publication Revue Abrégée African Journal of Marine Science
Volume 35 Numéro Pages 323-334
Mots-Clés Lutjanus kasmira; Priacanthus hamrur; Reunion; Reunion island; Selar crumenophthalmus; Stable Isotopes; Stomach contents; trophic niche width
Résumé At Reunion Island (south-western Indian Ocean), artificial reefs were submerged in 2003 in a bay and were soon colonised by fish, among which were the highly abundant commercial species Lutjanus kasmira, Priacanthus hamrur and Selar crumenophthalmus. The high concentration and diversity of fish around the artificial reefs is surprising, considering the low abundance of potential benthic prey. We investigated the diet and food partitioning between the aforementioned species using stomach content and stable isotope analyses (delta C-13, delta N-15). Priacanthus hamrur and S. crumenophthalmus fed on a larger prey diversity and showed significant overlap in their diets, with crustacean larvae the dominant prey. Fish larvae dominated L. kasmira's diet, and delta N-15 values confirmed the species' higher trophic level. Differences in delta C-13 between P. hamrur and S. crumenophthalmus indicated niche segregation, probably as a way to reduce competition, with P. hamrur being characterised by a smaller delta C-13 range and exhibiting a smaller isotopic niche than S. crumenophthalmus. There was a significant correlation between delta N-15 and fish standard length for the three species, suggesting that ontogeny partially explained the niche breadth. There was also a significant correlation between delta C-13 and length for L. kasmira, whereas individual specialisation was prevalent in S. crumenophthalmus.

Titre Trophic ecology of the European hake in the Gulf of Lions, northwestern Mediterranean Sea Type Article scientifique
Année 2017 Publication Revue Abrégée Sci. Mar.
Volume 81 Numéro 1 Pages 7-18
Mots-Clés age; bay; biscay; celtic sea; diet; foodweb; glm; habitat; Merluccius merluccius; merluccius-merluccius l.; predator-prey relationships; Size; small pelagic fish; spatiotemporal variation; stable-isotope ratios; Stable isotopes; Stomach contents
Résumé The European hake, Merluccius merluccius, is an important resource for Mediterranean fisheries. This study focuses on juvenile and adult hake feeding ecology in the Gulf of Lions, using information from scientific surveys carried out during two seasons and three years (2004- 2006). Stomach content and stable isotope (delta N-15, delta C-13) analyses were performed, and the main factors explaining variations in delta N-15 were investigated using GLMs. In the Gulf of Lions, hake mostly fed on crustaceans and fish and a dominant piscivorous regime was reached at 15 cm total length. Pelagic fish (sardine, anchovy and small blue whiting) were the main source of prey (40%- 80%) and cannibalism was low (< 5%). The results confirmed that hake is an opportunistic feeder and also showed that the size and diversity of prey vary among hake size classes, probably as a result of the different spatial distribution and/or foraging migrations. The present study finally postulates that the unbalanced sex ratio (80% female against 20% male) observed at the adult stage could be related to the combination of growth pattern differences, diet and exploitation rate on the continental shelf, where the males spend a longer period of time.
