Partially digested prey items taken from the gut contents of seven species of large pelagic fishes were identified by DNA sequencing of part of the cytochrome b gene. Sequences matched against those of five pelagic prey species held in GenBankĀ® with 99–100% identities. The method is applicable to most gut content identifications, the only limiting factor being the range of control species sequences held in the reference database.
