Abstract/Summary

The rate of regurgitation of food from the stomachs of trawl caught whiting Merlangius merlangus was negatively correlated with fish size. Increased musculature of the oesophageal sphincter in larger fish may enable them to resist the forced expulsion of their stomach contents to a greater extent.
