    Juvenile and adult two-spot gobies, Gobiusculus flavescens (Fabricius), were collected at three sites in the Plymouth area: the Plymouth Breakwater, Fort Bovisand, and the Yealm estuary. Fish were sampled by a diver-held grab-net, boat-towed zooplankton net, and beam-trawl, from early June until the end of September 1987.Percentage abundance and percentage occurrence dietary data are presented by a graphical technique, such that prey importance (rare or dominant) and fish feeding strategy (specialist or generalist), is visually apparent. It is applied to the different size groups of fish from each site.
