Here's two that I tied.
Don, so it's now 8 months later than when you posted this. Has this SRC study been published or do you know when it will be?Good job TR, I just thought of Joe's study this morning, but hadn't opened it up. Currently, James Losee, Larry Phillips (WDFW), Joe Jaquet and Bill Young are in the wrap up phase of publishing their study on clarki in the south sound. It covers a lot of data; from spawning and diet to migrations. Literally years in the making.
Bob,I love this topic! Here is the complete prey list from a coastal cutthroat feeding ecology study in the Salmon River estuary on the northern Oregon coast. This particular population resides in the lower estuary for three or four months instead of heading to the ocean. Crab (Brachyura) parts along with crab zoea are included and occurred about 15% of the time in fish taken from two of the sample sites.
Chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha), Northern anchovy (Engraulis mordax), Pacific herring (Clupea harengus), Shiner perch (Cymatogaster aggregata), Surf smelt (Hypomesus pretiosus)
Pacific staghorn sculpin (Leptocottus armatus), Prickly sculpin (Cottus asper), Saddleback gunnel (Pholis ornata), Flatfish spp. (family Pleuronectidae), Pacific sand lance (Ammodytes hexapterus) Estuarine
Isopoda, Eogammarus spp., Corophium spp., Crangon spp., Cirripedia, Brachyura Zoea, Brachyura parts, Mysidae, Polychaeta, Nematoda
