This dataset contains carbon isotope values of essential amino acids measured from white muscle tissue of coral reef fish predator and consumer species. These reef fish were sampled across inner lagoonal and outer reef slope habitats of North Male Atoll, Maldives. The five essential amino acids measured are Leucine, Lysine, Phenylalanine, Threonine, and Valine. more

Samples were collected between January and March 2017 and during December 2018.
