Industrial and agricultural discharges flowing into the Sheksna (Sheksninskiy) reach of the Rybinsk reservoir affect the structure of macrozoobenthos communities. Organisms of epifauna living on the surface of grounds suffered first. When agricultural discharges are diluted enough, the quantity of chironomids (Chironomidae) sharply increases. The same is relevant to the conditions of oil pollution in low concentrations. Chironomids are less resistant to industrial pollution. Oligochaetes (Oligochaeta, with the dominance of Limnodrilus hoffmeisteri) are predominated in zones of industrial pollution.
