The aim of the present study was to analyse the diet of smelt in Lake Peipsi.
The main commercial fishes in the lake are smelt, pikeperch, perch, bream, pike, ruffe, roach, and until the early 1990s also vendace.
The average lengths of smelt on different sampling dates were 333 mm.
Age 0+ smelt mainly consumed zooplankton (99%); chironomids, ostracods, and diatoms were taken in negligible amounts (Fig.
Kawahara and others said they conducted an experiment using cherry tomatoes that had taken in the antifreeze protein extracted from pond smelts through their roots.
01 gram of antifreeze protein per 1 gram of smelt, achieving the highest-ever extraction ratio.
