Abstract: We examined the feeding biology of two species of sculpins in
the northeastern Gulf of Alaska. The blackfin sculpin (Malacocottus kincaidit
fed primarily on benthic amphipods and nektobenthic shrimps, although it took
a wide assortment of both infaunal and epifaunal organisms; it also displayed a
tendency to feed within, as well as at, the sediment surface. The spinyhead sculpin
(Dasycottus setigeri ate a less diverse suite of prey that was dominated by
nektobenthic shrimps; no subsurface feeding was evident.
