Previous work has demonstrated that abundances of fishes and decapod crustaceans are depressed under large municipal piers (Able et al., 1998), and that growth rates of young-of-the-year (YOY) winter flounder (Pseudo-pleuronectes americanus) and tautog (Tautoga onitis) are negative (i.e., the fish lose weight) when caged under piers for extended periods (Duffy-Anderson and Able, 1999; Able et al., 1999).

ABSTRACT: The stomach contents of 326 young-of-the-year winter flounder, Pseudopleuronectes americanus, (20-65 mm total length, TL) obtained from caging studies (n=26) conducted June-July (1996-1998) and collected in benthic traps (n=30) deployed in June-July (1999) in the Hudson River estuary were examined to determine whether type and/or size of prey ingested varied with fish size.
