Abstract: Evidence for partitioning of food resources within populations of blue rockfish (Sebastes mystinus) was sought in fish stomoch contents. The possibility of environmental influences on partitioning are considered. Statistically significance is demonstrated for the differential consumption of decapods by different age classes of fish. Assumptions and potential errors are abundant.
