Specific structural features of the zooplankton community of Lake Imandra have been analyzed in areas polluted with wastewaters from the copper-nickel industry (Monche Bay) and apatite-nepheline industry (Belaya Bay) or heated waters from the Kola Nuclear Power Plant (Molochnaya Bay) and in a conditionally clean (background) area (the eastern and western parts of Babinskaya Imandra pool). The current ecological state of these communities has been assessed. The results contribute to knowledge about the responses of hydrobionts to pollution with different kinds of industrial wastewaters and the potential of using the zooplankton community as a reliable indicator for evaluating the state of aquatic ecosystems.
