A multispecies trophic model called ECOPATH II, which can be used to describe trophic relationships in aquatic ecosystems on a quantitative basis, is briefly analyzed. When properly used, it can help explain the trophic relationships in ecosystems and the evolution of fish stocks several years after impoundment. An example is provided on an Asian man-made lake, Ubolratana reservoir (Thailand). It can be compared to African man-made lakes where similar conditions have been documented.
