A preliminary study on feeding habits of P. monodon F. (cf. Marte, 1980) indicated seasonal variations in feeding in this species. Similar observations have been reported for P. aztecus Ives and P. duorarum Burkenroad. The present paper confirms this preliminary observation and provides indications of a relationship between feeding activity and spawner occurrence.
