Description
Data on the evolution of food composition and food consumption for herring, plaice and sole in the North Sea between 1947 and 1977. The data were digitized by VLIZ from the original report: Ovaere, A. (1977). Het voedselverbruik van haring (Clupea harengus L.), pladijs (Pleuronectes platessa L.) en tong (Solea solea (L.)) in de Noordzee. BSc Thesis. Katholieke Universiteit te Leuven: Leuven. 140 pp. more

The first part of the dataset gives the numbers of herring, plaice and sole for different ages and/or sex of the fish found per year in the North Sea (ICES data). Based on this the food consumption F is calculated for the three fish populations and per year class of the fish. The second part gives an overview of prey species found in the stomach of herring, plaice and sole in the North Sea (different studies). Additionally stomach analysis is done for these species which were sampled in the Westdiep on 11 March 1977.
