Abstract: Seasonal density of Zooplankton in the Ken River was studied July 2013 to June 2014. Zooplankton forms the microscopic and free floating animals that play an important role in aquatic food chain as they are largely consumed by fishes particularly their larvae and other higher organisms in food chain. They feed on phytoplankton and facilitate the conversion of plant material into animal tissue. They play a major role to study the faunal diversity and in energy transfer to the next higher trophic levels and are also good indicator of water quality. They are strongly affected by environmental conditions and responds quickly to change in environmental quality. Hence, qualitative and quantitative study of zooplanktons is of great importance.
