Foods and feeding periodicity of the white river springfish crenichthys baileyi



Foods and feeding periodicity of the white river springfish crenichthys baileyi



Great Basin Naturalist 49(2): 249-251



White River springfish collected in August and December 1966 from Hot Creek Spring, Nevada,[USA] fed primarily on amphipods, ostracods, plant fragments, and detritus. Composition of the diet was similar in both months. However, amphipods were the most important food in August, while in December amphipods, ostracods, plant fragments, and detritus were of approximately equal importance. Comparison of diel feeding periodicity and activity patterns suggests that most of the daily activity of White River springfish is related to feeding.
