In summer of 2004-2009 the composition of stomach content in Perca fluviatilis on the benthos-eating stage (fullness index, frequency of occurrence and mass fraction of food objects) and biomass proportion of main macrozoobenthic groups were studied in oligotrophic subarctic lake (Krivoye Lake, Northern Karelia). The coastal amphipod Gammarus lacustris was the main feeding object of perch in the lake. The expressed specialization of perch feeding on large invertebrates (> 10 mm) and summer shift were revealed; summer shift in preferred food objects (from amphipods G. lacustris to insects larvae) depends on availability of large dominants in the lake benthos.
