Short summary
This work describes a 148-year compilation of stomach content data for five pelagic fish species (herring, blue whiting, mackerel, albacore and bluefin tuna) sampled over a broad geographic region of the northeast Atlantic. We describe the main results in terms of diet composition and predator–prey relationships. The analyses suggests significant differences in the prey items selected by predators in different parts of the area at different times of year.
