This dataset gather replicated measurement of isotopic ratios measured for 32 fish species sampled in summer and winter 2010 around artificial reefs deployed in the Prado Bay in Marseille (43.27397N, 43.257969S, 5.371262E, 5.325944O).

Acknowledgements All fishes sampled with trammel nets were taken during experimental fishing by J.-Y. Jouvenel and members of “P2A Développement” team to whom we are grateful. Thanks are also expressed to B. de Ligondes,F. Zuberer, G. Bleton (Scuba diving crew, OSU Pytheas) and to F. Morat for their most valuable help during field sampling, especially in winter. Stable isotope analyses were performed by P. Richard and G. Guillou (LIENSs laboratory, Université de la Rochelle). These results are part of the “RECIFS PRADO” programme, funded by grants from the city of Marseilles and the “Agence de l'Eau Rhône- Mediterranée-Corse”.
