Abstract:

A study on the seasonal changes in the plankton community was carried out in semi intensive carp culture ponds over a period of 9 months. Plankton diversity and physicochemical parameters of water are important criteria for evaluating the suitability of water for culture practices. Among phytoplankton the population of Chlorophyceae was maximum (42.60 %) and among zooplankton rotifers (43.86%) are dominated followed by copepods. The highest phytoplankton and zooplankton abundance was observed in summer and the lowest was in winter. Phytoplankton and zooplankton are positively correlated (r: 0.713) to each other in semi intensive culture pond.
