Matang mangrove forest reserve (MMFR) is considered as a most productive mangrove forest. In the last decades, it is discussed in different studies that the productivity of MMFR is declining. To investigate this decline in productivity Isotopic productivity model was used in six (18,31,42,71,74 and 55) compartments of MMFR. Compartments selection was based on locality and plantation age. In this isotopic model, N and P were used as limiting nutrients. Resulted, the productivity of 15 years old aged compartment was higher than 25 years old aged compartment. The compartment which was close to the populated area showed higher productivity than all. In last, the productivity of 15 years old age compartment was equal to 80 years old aged compartment. N and d15N showed the peculiar pattern. Compartment with high values of N and d15N showed less productivity than the compartment with the moderate value of N and d15N. This study aims to investigate nitrogen loading and its effect on productivity.Keywords: MMFR, Productivity, Compartment, decline, Isotopic model.
