Infinite- and finite-dimensional lattices of Lotka-Volterra type are derived that possess Lax representations and have large families of first integrals. The obtained systems are Hamiltonian and contain perturbations of Volterra lattice. Examples of Liouville-integrable 4-dimensional Hamiltonian Lotka-Volterra systems are presented. Several 5-dimensional Lotka- Volterra systems are found that have Lax representations and are Liouville-integrable on constant levels of Casimir functions.
