    In the summer-autumn period E. carlsbergi fed mainly on copepods. Daily food intake measured using various methods ranged from 3.7 to 5.6 % of fish body weight. The amount of food consumed by E. carlsbergi during the year in the southern regions of the Antarctic Convergence is about 15 times its own weight.
