This investigation was undertaken to study the physico-chemical characteristics and zooplankton composition of the Seena river water. Physico-chamical parameters of Seena river water were favorable range for growth of Zooplankton. The Zooplankton community was maximum in summer season and minimum in the monsoon due to high temperature and low turbidty in summer season and vice versa. The composition of the zooplankton (rotifera) was dominant (40.82%) followed by Cladocera (25.67%), Copepoda (18.78%) and Ostracoda (14.71%). The Dominant trend of zooplankton in the present investigation Rotifera &
