Gizzard shad; Food habits
In his 1920 paper, L. H. Tiffany states that the gizzard shad (Dorosoma cepedianum) offers for the game fish one of the most direct routes possible from manufacturer to consumer. In view of this conclusion, the research reported in this paper was undertaken for the purpose of determining (a) what foods are ingested by gizzard shad, and (b) if there is any correlation between food ingested and that available in greatest supply in the natural habitat. The study was centered in an area of the Mississippi River in the vicinity of Winona, Minnesota. Some additional work was done about thirty-five miles north of Winona in Lake Pepin, a widening of the Mississippi River.
