Summary

Fish muscle tissue was analyzed for stable carbon and nitrogen isotope values (delta 13C and delta 15N) for two filter-feeding fishes native to China, silver carp (Hypophthalmichthys molitrix) and bighead carp (Hypophthalmichthys nobilis), and three native filter-feeding fish including bigmouth buffalo (Ictiobus cyprinellus), gizzard shad (Dorosoma cepedianum) and paddlefish (Polyodon spathula) in the lower Missouri River, USA,
