The trophic ecosystem modelling software, ECOPATH II, was used to analyze the Lake Chad system, Africa, during its normal phase, the period between 1969 and 1972. Reasonable estimated of population-related parameters for fish and invertebrate stocks were obtained, and an energy flow diagram for the whole lake is presented.
