Abstract

The food and feeding habits of the pelagic shrimp, Oplophorus typus, an inhabitant of deep scattering layer from the west coast of India were studied during the period, October 1998-May 2001. Difference in food preference had been noticed between seasons and at different bathymetric realms. O.typus preferred food items such as detritus, chaetognaths, crustacean remains, fish remains, shrimp remains, euphausiids, diatoms, copepods and foraminifera. Diurnal variations in the feeding intensity as well as preference of food items were noticed.
