Abstract

Breeding male ninespine sticklebacks are highly aggressive toward juvenile brook charr in the Matamek River, Quebec. Such aggression was always initiated by the sticklebacks and only if the charr approached their nests or free-swimming fry. There was considerable overlap in diet in August, but not in June and July, suggesting competition for food is possible under some circumstances.-from Authors
