ABSTRACT: The Great Basin Rivers are home to a large variety of fishes, both native and invasive. As part of a larger macrosystems project, we analyzed stomach contents from fish collected on the Carson, Humboldt, and Bear Rivers in Nevada, Idaho, and Utah. Using the Manly-Chesson diet selectivity index we compared the contents of our stomachs to results of invertebrate surveys performed concurrently with our fish sampling. The results of this study will be used in conjunction with future sampling efforts in Mongolia and the Yellowstone River.
