An attempt to construct a trophic model of Veli Lake, southern India, was made using the ECOPATH II approach and software. This was use to estimate the biomasses of exploited fishes such as mullets, Etroplus, catfishes and prawns and of their preys. Catches from the lake are very high and, in consequences, high biomasses are estimated for most groups.
