The freshwater ecosystems are detoured by anthropogenic activities and Industrialization,which resulted in a dramatic increase in the pollution level of aquatic ecosystems over the past decade. One of the cheapest ways to assistthe health of the aquatic ecosystem is bymonitoring theorganisms present in them and such organisms are the ‘Biological indicators’ In the present review c65cxwe tried to sum up the studies on freshwater zooplanktons as a biological indicator. They quickly responses to the changes that occurred in their environment and hence they are the efficient model for water quality assessment. Pollution limited the presence of some species, while others were discovered to be accepting the same, as a result, researchers can implement them as a promising tool for studying the health of the aquatic environment. Hence the objective of this study is to furnish the knowledge of freshwater zooplanktons asbiological indicators forwater quality studies.Further will contribute to developing the appropriate framework for environmental analysis to policy makers.
