The major objectives of this study were to evaluate trophic state of reservoirs using major water quality variables and its relations in terms of trophic guilds and tolerance guilds with dominant lentic fishes. For this study, we selected 6 artificial reservoirs such as Namyang Reservoir (NyR), Youngsan Reservoir (YsR), Daechung Reservoir (DcR), Chungju Reservoir (CjR), Chungpyung Reservoir (CpR), and Paldang Reservoir (PdR), and collected fish during 2000~2007 along with data analysis of water quality monitored by the ministry of environment, Korea. Biological oxygen demand (BOD) and chemical oxygen demand (COD), indicators of organic matter pollution, varied depending on types of the reservoirs and the spatial patterns in terms of trophic gradients were similar to patterns of nutrients, Secchi depth and chlorophyll-a. Analysis of trophic state index (TSI) showed that reservoirs of DcR and CjR were mesotrophy and other 4 reservoirs were eutrophic state. The relations of trophic relations showed that TSI (Chl-a) had a positive linear function [TSI (CHL)=0.407 TSI (TP)+28.2, n= 138, p⁄0.05] with TSI (TP) but had a weak relation with TSI (TN). Also, TSI (TP) were negatively correlated (R2=0.703, p⁄0.05) with TSI (SD), whereas TSI (TN) was not significant (p¤0.05) relations with TSI (SD). Tolerance guilds of lentic fishes, based on three types of the reservoirs, reflected the exactly water quality in the TN, TP, BOD, and COD, and similar trends were shown in the fish feeding/trophic guilds.
