Title: Field evidence for suspension feeding in Pseudocaranx dentex, with comments on ram filtering in other jacks (Carangidae)
Author: Sazima, I
Abstract: Suspension feeding is known in 16 fish families, with one instance of ram filtering recently recorded in a piscivorous naucratine carangid. I present field evidence of suspension feeding by Pseudocaranx dentex, a piscivorous and macroinvertivorous carangine jack, and note that ram filtering is already recorded for the leatherjacket Oligoplites saliens, a piscivorous and scale-eating scomberoidine carangid. Based on food habits and postulated phylogenetic relationships, I suggest that additional species of carangine jacks ram filter and that suspension feeding is a derived condition within the Carangidae.
