Liza abu is very important in term of economically and ecologically in the estuaries around the Persian Gulf. Studies on the feeding ecology of Liza abu are very important for our better understanding of the biology and the ecological role of this fish for assess reserves and species conservation. The influence of sex and season on the feeding habit of Liza abu from Musa estuary in Khozestan province, was examined. The first, the biometry features were measured then the stomach of each sample was surveyed. Ten different groups of prey were identified, belonging, in order of abundance, to detritus, organic matter, seaweed, Chlorophyceae, Myxophyceae, Bacillariophyceae, Copepods, Insect larvae, Nematodes and other. The comparison indicated that there was striking difference between the contents of male and female stomachs.
