Abstract

Observations on the food of three sting rays, Dosyutis itarnak, D. ciJcockii and D. seplien were made separately. D. uarmik was observed to feed voraciously on both pelagic and benthic organisms. All the three are carnivores, feeding chiefly on fishes, crustaoeans, molluscs and polychaetes.
