The report provides information on the importance of Caridean shrimps in the food of juvenile Trigla species (gurnard), Agonus cataphractus (hook-nose) and Liparis liparis (sea snail) in the Belgian coastal waters, and gives some biometric data related to stomach content and composition. The results show the importance of Caridean shrimps, especially Crangon crangon, as a food source for perciform fish species in inshore waters. The records of the chameleon prawn, Hippolyte varians in fish stomachs and in trawl and grab samples are compared, and the actual knowledge on the distribution and abundance of this shrimp species is discussed.
