Abstract

The study of zooplankton is now become a fascinating field. The zooplankton community properties used as indicators of the reservoir trophic status and useful monitoring tool for environmentalists. Zooplanktons are good indicators of the changes in water quality because they are strongly affected by environmental conditions and respond quickly to changes in water quality criteria. Fish population also depends on Zooplankton since it is an intermediate link between phytoplankton and fish. Hence qualitative and quantitative studies of zooplankton are of great importance for all aspect, environmental as well as fishery industry. Raipur is the tehsil headquarter of Pali district of the Rajasthan state. It is situated on National Highway No. - 14 and in the nearby area of Aravali mountain range. It is situated at 26.01714 latitude and 74.06450 longitude on the globe. Water is a prime natural resource, a basic human need and a precious national asset and hence its use needs appropriate planning, development and management. In freshwater bodies, nutrients play a major role as their excesses lead to eutrophication. Owing to the high environmental sensitivity of planktonic species to the water quality, the study of their communities can indicate the deterioration of the environment. The zooplanktons are heterotrophic group of animals suspended in water with limitations of locomotion and migration; they are grouped in to four major animal groups. Protozoa, rotifers, Crustacea(cladocerans) and Crustacea(copepods). The water samples were collected for analysis and quantitative zooplankton at different sites in from the reservoir. The study of qualitative and quantitative analysis of zooplanktons has been carried out on this water body. The study revealed that 20 species belonging to four major groups identified viz. Protozoa (05) Cladocera (07), Rotifers (05), Copepods (03). The Cladocerans dominated having seven species followed by Rotifers and protozoa with five and copepods three species. Therefore, it can be stated that water reservoir is rich in zooplanktons.
