The composition and structure of zooperiphyton of the cooling pond of the Tyumen Thermal Power Station-1, and also their annual dynamics, are discussed in the paper. It has been found that in the place of heated waters release the taxonomic composition of zooperiphyton was mixed. It included both rheophilous and limnophilous species. Mollusca were highly diverse in their species composition, whereas Bryozoa, Naididae, and Nematoda occurred in abundance. The peculiarities of the thermal regime of the cooling pond are favorable to the development of introduced species.
