Abstract

Feeding selectivity, food assimilability and demand of the Baikal invader Gmelinoides fasciatus (Stebbing, 1899) in Lake Ladoga.

Abstract

Feeding selectivity and assimilability of the Baikal invader Gmelinoides fasciatus (Stebbing, 1899) in Lake Ladoga at feeding by various types of plant and animal food have been studied experimentally. The food demand has been assessed at different assimilation levels. Freshwater shrimp G. fasciatus has been shown to have distinct selective capacity with respect to different kinds of plant and animal food.
