Abstract: Food of yellow perch {Perca flavescens), freshwater drum (A plodinotus grunniens), channel catfish (Ictalurus punctatus), and white bass (M or one chrysops) collected from Sandusky Bay in 1971-72 were recorded and seasonal changes noted. Perch and drum rely on aquatic insect larvae, zooplankton and fish. Catfish were omnivorous feeding on a variety of dipterans, fish and cladocerans. The white bass were generally piscivorous. Each species ate seasonally distinct food based on availability.
