N.V. Kuznetsova, Can.Sc. (Biology), A.I. Ivanova, the Dmitrovsky Fishery Technological Institute – the Branch of the Astrakhan State Technical University, V.P. Korotenko, the Moscow State University

To evaluate the quality of water in the Volgusha river, the Pantle and Bucca saprobity system, the Woodiwiss method and the Integrated Index of the ecological well-being of the reservoir (IIES) were used. The spatial heterogeneity of hydrological and hydrochemical conditions throughout the Volgusha river, caused by the terrain, determines the structural differences of the zoobenthos, its composition and quantitative development; so it can serve as an indicator of water quality in different parts of the river. Bioindication of the river on the basis of zoobenthos indicators using various methods allowed to give a reliable estimate of the degree of anthropogenic load on different sections of the water object.
