Observations on the feeding habits of the narrow mouthed cat shark Schroederichthys bivius (Chondrichthyes, Scyliorhinidae) in the Beagle Channel

The study of the stomach contents of 97 specimens of the narrow mouthed cat shark Schroederichthys bivius shows that their basic food consists of crabs, mainly Munida subrugosa. No significant variations were observed between size classes. The strongly developed sexual dimorphism in Touch morphology and mouth shape was not correlated with the diet of males and females
