• Euryphagy

Euryphages are organisms that feed on a wide variety of food items. Almost all temperate fishes are euryphagous.

Omnivores, organisms with a wide range of food items. Euryphagous fishes can survive structural changes in the biocenosis and lack of food relatively well, although they sometimes expend a great deal of energy searching for food. They include carp, chub, ide, roach and tench.

Euryphagia, the ability of organisms to feed on a wide variety of foods, is an adaptation to a changing food supply.
