The impacts of human related activities on trophic structure of mangroveassociated fish species, was investigated by sampling fish in mangrove creeks. Trophic organization and stable isotope signatures ( 13C and  15N) of fish in undisturbed mangrove creeks were compared with clear-cut areas of mangrove and reservoirs for saltworks and fish farms constructed after mangrove clearing.
