The diet of the blue shark Prionace glauca off central and northern Chile in the eastern South Pacific, during 2005 and 2006 were dominated by teleost fishes (72.21%IRI) and cephalopods (27.07%IRI). The seasonal feeding of blue shark showed as the most important prey diverse teleost fish species. Our findings would confirm that blue shark is a predator with wide trophic spectrum in the eastern south Pacific, although a higher number of stomachs need to be studied.
