Abstract

The stomach contents of 122 common carp (Cyprinus carpio L., 1758) individuals collected from lakes Tatli and Gicl between January 2000 and December 2000 were investigated. The Geometric Index of Importance (GII) was used to determine food preferences among individuals and to assess whether these preferences were age based.
