Abstract Share this page

This study was conducted based on monthly examination of gut contents of 120 Mugil cephalus over a period of one year ranging from February 2000 to January 2001. It was found to feed mainly on diatoms, algae, copepods, decayed organic matter, sand & mud. The average percentage composition of food items in the stomach of Mugil cephalus were diatoms 39.42%, algae 13.75%, copepods 7.17%, decayed organic matter 12.50% and sand and mud 27.17%. The maximum quantity of food (47%) was recorded in the month of June. Dietary components of Mugil cephalus proved undoubtedly that the fish obtains its diet consisting mainly of fresh and decaying algae from the benthic zones. So the fish was found to be herbivore.
