We analyzed the diet of Pachyurus bonariensis, captured in the Mocoretá river, Uruguay River, in March 2012. The feeding regime of this perciform agreed with the carnivorous bentophagous type, and the dominant prey of both juveniles and adults, were chironomid larvae and Ephemeroptera nymphs. The adult specimens exhibited a more diverse diet than the juveniles.
