Abstract

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.
