Authors : Abdur Razzaq Joadder and M.D. Hossain

Abstract: The pattern of food and feeding habit of brakishwater gold spot mullet, Liza parsia (Hamilton) was studied during the period from March 1998 to February 2000. The fish is a herbivorous, feeding mainly on algae (36.55%), higher plant parts (17.19%), protozoans (12.88%), crustaceans (16.46%), debris, sand and mud (12.83%) and unidentified food materials (3.69%) by weight. Electivity analysis showed that the fish avoided zooplankton and strongly selected some genera of phytoplankton (Volvox, Diatoma, Nostoc, Anabina and Ulothrix).
