dc.description.abstract Field observations show that there is generally a greater abundance of larger zooplankton in aquatic environments that lack fish than those with fish present. One possible explanation of this phenomenon is the top down model of community organization which suggests that the composition of lower trophic level communities are influenced by higher trophic level predators. This study attempted to test this theory by performing experiments to determine if fish selectively feed on large rather than small zooplankton and if density of prey effects fish predation. The results indicate that fish do feed selectively on larger zooplankton. No significant difference in rate of predation was found for differing prey densities. en_US
