fuscus (Storer, 1839), showed a greater affinity for the clam beds in response to the structure provided by the attached macroalgae.
Among the observed prey items, species such as roach, rudd, silver bream, bleak, monkey goby, perch, and black-striped pipefish, Syngnathus
abaster, were found in the stomachs of all studied piscivorous fishes, however with different prevalence and importance.
