Massive Consumption of Gelatinous Plankton by Mediterranean Apex Predators

Figure 7

Stable isotope ratios of the diet of amberjack, pompano, horse mackerel, dolphinfish, blue butterfish and mackerel from the northwestern Mediterranean.

Solid circles represent the average stable isotope ratios of each consumer after correcting for diet-tissue isotopic discrimination and error bars show standard deviation. Other symbols show the average stable isotope ratios of their potential prey: pelagic crustaceans (solid squares), gelatinous plankton (empty squares), squid (solid triangles) and small pelagic and mesopelagic fish (empty triangles).
