Fish stomach

It's what is inside that counts...

​​​​​​Understanding species interactions is key to understanding more widely how marine ecosystems function. With the contents of fish stomachs, scientists can gain knowledge on what species are feeding on, which in turn can be used as input to multispecies and ecosystem models.

This data portal collates stomach data from the ICES year of the stomach:

  • 1981, 1985-1986, - a few key commercial species in the North Sea.
  • 1991 the 2nd year of the stomach ran

In addition, this portal now includes data collated under the EU Tender MARE/2012/02 which focused on the Baltic Sea Region and specifically Cod. 

Note: This database is under review and downloads are not possible at the present. For further information please contact the ICES Data Centre:​
