This manual provides instructions on how to operate and parameterize a model (SLIMM) designed for use by managers of small lakes in B.C. A detailed description of model structure is also provided. The model focuses on rainbow trout and is designed to assist managers in anticipating the results of a variety of management actions in three main categories: regulations, stocking, and habitat alterations. The model is based on a variety of empirical relationships that link factors such as fish growth to density. These relationships form dynamic links to lower trophic levels which are not explicitly modeled. Output is in the form of time series graphs or equilbrium values for 49 indicators.
