Trophic Subsidies 

The movement of fishes and invertebrates between ecosystems can be a major source of energy to marine food webs. We use stable isotope analysis to trace and quantify these subsidies. In the northeastern Gulf of Mexico we determined that pinfish migration accounts for ~25% of the energy available to offshore food webs.
