Structure of the zoobenthos community in the lower reaches of the river Letnyaya (Loukhsky district, Karelia)

Kozminsky E. V.

Abstract

Changes in the structure of the zoobenthos community after fishery melioration of water bodies are of significant practical and scientific interest. The assessment of the state of the zoobenthos community and of the hydrobionts living conditions before starting these activities is a prerequisite for such studies. This article describes the zoobenthos community (species composition, community structure, density and biomass) in the lower reaches of the river Letnyaya (Loukhsky district, Karelia) before the start of fishery melioration.

Keywords:

zoobenthos, community structure, fishery melioration, small rivers, Karelia
