One hundred and fifty-one Centroscyllium fabricii stomachs containing food were analysed on board freezer vessels in north-west Atlantic in 1992. Three length groups were established to study variations in diet with length. The most important prey group was waste products from fish processing by the fleet and fish. Diet varied with length, smaller specimens feeding on crustaceans and molluscs, offal and fish forming the main prey in larger predators.
