Abstract
    The inventory of molluscs and other benthic species collected in the digestive tract of Anarhichas lupus Linnaeus, 1758 caught in North-Eastern Iceland is described. The content of the stomach and the intestine reveals the opportunistic feeding habits of this very impressive fish. 15 species of bivalves and 13 species of gastropods have been identified in 2 distinct lots. As the food of the fish is crushed with so much energy by the animal, to find some intact specimens of molluscs in its gastro-intestinal tract is quite surprising. This inventory gives an idea of the molluscs one can encounter in this region.
