Abstract

Larvae and pupae of Chaoborus edulis may be the most important food resource of some deep-water demersal fish species in southern Lake Malawi. C. edulis feed on crustacean zooplankton, which in turn feed on phytoplankton. Hence, demersal fish production is supported directly by planktonic primary production, rather than through a detrital food chain. © 1996 The Fisheries Society of the British Isles.
