HOUDE prey densities usually are higher than those in the sea, experiments are usually of short duration (whereas field observations integrate feeding over many hours), and the walls of containers may facilitate trapping of prey.

In this method the predators are not identified and two mortality coefficients (total and starvation) must be estimated, both of which may be inaccurate or imprecise. A desirable feature is that total predation mortality is assessed, not just that inflicted by one or two predator species. , 1986). Inverse relationships between the spatial distribution of northern anchovy larvae and that of potential predators, such as siphonophores and medusae have been reported (Alvariiio, 1980, 1981). Northern anchovy larvae were relatively more abundant in tows dominated by potential food, such as small copepods and euphausiids, than in tows where predators were abundant.

Aurita medusae resulted in captures, whereas no contacts with 18 mm larvae were successful. That study also demonstrated clear inverse relationships between capture success and larval developmental stage for flounder, cod and plaice. Starved herring larvae became increasingly susceptible to capture. Heeger and Moller (1987) showed that herring contacting parts of Aurelia aurita were caught with different efficiencies; tentacles caught 94% of larvae contacted, whereas exumbrellar and subumbrellar surfaces caught 76 and 14% of larvae.
