Oil on its own was about as toxic to mysid shrimp
as the dispersant-oil mixtures, except for the mixture of oil with Nokomis 3-AA, which was more toxic than oil alone.

are fatty, so they can collect high doses of pollutants in their bodies.
Other prey that were of lesser dietary importance, yet relatively common in stomachs of winter flounder (%F>1%), included ostracods, nematodes, and mysid shrimp
. Summer flounder 19-172 mm TL consumed 32 different prey taxa and each stomach contained, on average, 2.1 (SE 0.03) prey taxa (Table 2).

Merriner (1975) examined the diet of weakfish captured in North Carolina waters and found that penaeid and mysid shrimps
, anchovies, and clupeid fishes were the most common food items.
(Neomysis spp.) and bay an chovy (Anchoa mitchilli) were the main prey of the summer flounder, accounting for approximately 42% combined (24.1% and 17.9%, respectively, Fig.
Hatchlings (0-8 weeks old) were fed either with (i) a mixture of brine shrimp, mysid shrimp
and amphipods (mainly Gammarus sp.), or (ii) with brine shrimp that were enriched with fatty acids and amino acids by a soaking in Super Selco (INVE Inc.).
Other invertebrates that were important items on several dates included mysid shrimp
, polychaetes, and oligochaetes.
scolopes adults eat primarily mysid shrimp
; in aquaria, the young also take Artemia (Singley, 1983).
Among the native mysid shrimps
of the Baltic Sea N.
have been systematically studied in the Estonian coastal range since 1970.
The initial diet consisted of live, newly hatched squid (Loligo pealei), Anemia sp., and mysid shrimps
. As the fish increased in size, the diet was switched to approximately 10% live food (guppies), and 90% prepared food such as chopped butterfish (Peprilus triacanthus), oyster (Crassostrea virginica), blood-worms (Glycera capitata), krill, and thawed squid.
