Plankton play a significant role in the food chain and the cycling of organic materials in the aquatic ecosystem, therefore their significance is well understood. A significant barrier to a better understanding of the dynamics of plankton in freshwater bodies is our lack of knowledge of these organisms. In the present investigation, total 29 species of phytoplankton and 26 species of zooplankton were also recorded. Bimodal pattern of seasonal variation of plankton was observed with a primary peak in the month of June and secondary peak in December. It was determined that the physical, chemical, and biological parameters were favourable for agricultural and fish culture.
