Subject: Ecology | Biology | Fisheries
The diet and daily ration of the shortfin mako (Isurus oxyrinchus) in the northwest Atlantic were re-examined to determine whether fluctuations in prey abundance and
availability are reflected in these two biological variables. During the summers of 2001 and 2002, st... View more
