In this study was carried out winter season in 2011; zooplankton fauna of the Bingol Floating Islands. To-tally 18 zooplankton species were determined as fol-lows; 14 Rotifera, 3 Cladocera and 1 Copepoda. It was determined that this zooplanktonic organisms consist-ed of 87.74 % Rotifera, 6.83 % Cladocera, and 3.36 % copepodit stages, 2.07 % nauplii of copepoda. Rotif-era were the dominant group with regard to both spe-cies numbers, and individual numbers of species. Cy-clops vicinus from Copepoda, Diaphasoma branchy-rum from Cladocera, and Trichocerca capucina from Rotifera were determined to be dominant species of the Bingol Floating Islands. In addition, some physical and chemical parameters of the water bodies located under/around Bingol Floating Islands were determi-ned and their interactions with the zooplankton species were tried to be explained.
