The report provides information on the importance of Caridean shrimps in the food of juvenile Merlangius merlangus (whiting), Trisopterus luscus (bib), juvenile Gadus morhua (cod) and Ciliata mustela (five-bearded rockling) in the Belgian coastal waters, as well as some biometric data related to stomach content and composition (stomach weight, weight of Caridean shrimps per stomach, number of Caridean shrimps per stomach in relation to predator size). The results clearly demonstrate the importance of Caridean shrimps, especially Crangon crangon, as a food source for Gadoid fish species in inshore waters.
