This phenomenon has been documented for several species, including Bluegill Sunfish (Lepomis macrochirus) and Sandbar Shark (Carcharhinus plumbeus), which were reported to undergo not only ontogenetic and energetic changes in diet but also habitat expansion as fish grew (Mittelbach, 1981; McElroy et al., 2006).
