Differences in trophic pathways

ABA 2013 14 12 Copepods 

Arctic Biodiversity Assessment (ABA) 2013.

Figure 14.12. Differences in trophic pathways based on availability of the copepod C. marshallae and the euphausiid T. raschii on the southeastern Bering Sea shelf. When these species are not available, predation and cannibalism of age-0 pollock increases, as does overwinter mortality of age-0 pollock due to insufficient energy stores. In contrast, when the zooplankton are abundant, cannibalism and predation decrease and energy stores may increase resulting in stronger recruitment of age-1 pollock. (Source: Hunt et al. 2011.).
