Sadly, the food supply (fish) in the loch is inadequate for the support of a Nessie...
Not quite sure where you got that one from Laz?
Loch Ness has abundant supplies of Atlantic Salmon, Charr, Eels, Pike, & Trout and some smaller numbers of Perch, Roach, Dace, Rudd, Carp etc too.
Not to mention many bird species including ducks, herons, gulls & cormorants.
There are otters and deer there too. (Yes, deer swim in the Loch)
And... what if nessie was omnivorous? There are loads of water based plants in there to eat.

To the OP:
The way I see it, there never was much of a chance of there being large creatures under the waters of Loch Ness, (I say creatures because how could
there just be one??) but the fact remains that there have been many credible sightings stretching back hundreds of years. Are they all wrong?
I have personally seen strange waves/wake on the surface of the Loch, when no boat or anything else was nearby.
I've also seen some very convincing video footage of similar wakes, but nothing conclusive I'm afraid.
The Loch itself is VERY deep, and the organised searches (that haven't found much) usually use a string of motorised boats equipped with sonar,
travelling along the length of the Loch. I imagine that any large creature would stay well away from a large formation of motor boats if it could?
The lack of recent sightings could also be as a result of the increase in modern "noise" from traffic, engines etc keeping the creatures deep and away
from shore during daylight?
I certainly wouldn't give up on her just yet...
