Fishes are the largest group of vertebrates on Earth and this diversity of species number is reflected in the wide range of ways that fishes acquire food and the types of food that are ingested. Major topics in fish feeding include the range of dietary habits of fishes, the diverse strategies of capturing or ingesting food, the functional morphology of the jaws of fishes, ecological patterns of prey acquisition, and evolutionary trends in fish feeding biology.
