Abstract:A study of the food habits of the crested goby was conducted in Dade County, Florida, in 1974 and 1975. The diet is very diverse, although algae account for more than half of the dry weight. Other food items include amphipods, isopods, copepods, tanaids, ostracods, insects, polychaetes, mollusks, and barnacles. The crested goby is an opportunistic feeder. Food habits are compared seasonally, among size-classes, and between collecting sites. Digestive tract length is slightly less than standard length.
