Devadoss, P and Pillai, P K Mahadevan (1979) Observations on the food and feeding habits of the eel, Muraenesox cinereus (Forskal) from Porto Novo. Indian Journal of Fisheries, 26 (1&2). pp. 244-246.
Feeding in Muraenesox cinereus was studied from the catches of hooks and line fishing operations from^ the catamarans. This fish is a carnivore and largely piscivorous, feeding on the pelagic, demersal and bottom living organisms. Cannibalistic tendency is noticed. Pelagic fishes like the mackerel and the clupeids are found mostly preferred.
