species had a higher abundance in the open pond but represented less than 16% in gut content, contrastingly to Proales sp and Lecane sp (Rotifera) which represented more than 28% of zooplankton ingested by B.

The faunistic data with regard to Copepoda
and Cladocera in Western Poland are scarce and limited to general information from lakes' ecological monitoring.
In their study of the structure of the parasitic fauna of the white catfish Netuma barba (Ariidae), a demersal fish that occurs in marine and estuarine environments and seeks the mouths of rivers and lagoon areas at spawning time, Tavares and Luque (2004) found that Copepoda
was the most abundant taxon, representing 37.
and Acari with 6 and 9 taxa respectively were the next most important groups, but they did not exceed 3 and 6% of total relative abundance, respectively.
The fish consumed 27 food items, grouped into seven food categories: vegetal matter (leaves, roots, stalk and seeds), algae (Bacillariophyceae, Chlorophyceae, Cyanophyceae, Euglenophyceae, Oedogoniaceae, Zygnemaphyceae), detritus (organic and inorganic matter), fish (remains, scales, eggs and fingerlings), microcrustaceans (Cladocera, Copepoda
, Rotifera, Ostracoda), macroinvertebrates (Hirudinea and Oligochaeta) and aquatic insects (Diptera and Coleoptera).
