Sampling Methods

Zooplankton samples were collected by straining through an Apstein plankton sieve with gas № 32. Samples of zoobenos were collected using a frame of 0.25 x 025 m with a metal sieve with a hole size of 2 mm. Information on ichthyofauna was collected by visual observations, temporary extraction with a hydrobiological net with a mesh size of 3 mm, temporary extraction with a delicacy with a mesh size of 6 mm, temporary extraction with fishing rods for recreational fishing. Temporarily removed fish after counting and weighing were returned to the natural environment. The presence of species was associated with a section of water area of ​​a certain area, the geolocation of the center of which was carried out using the resource "Google Maps".
