Abstract/Summary

The diet of the seven star flying squid, Martiala hyadesi, from the South Georgia sector of the Scotia Sea was described front stomach contents collected in winter (June) 2001. Diet was dominated by the hyperiid amphipod, Themisto gaudichaudii, fish (nine species, mainly myctophids) and cephalopods (mainly, cannibalism). The absence of krill, Euphausia superba, and the presence of larger myctophids in the diet are discussed in terms of seasonal and annual prey availability.
