Two fish ponds and one reservoir of complex assignment were studied. In these waters 160 species and varieties of ciliates were found, two of them were new for Ukraine. Seasonal dynamic of quantity and biomass, as well as production and destruction of organic substances by ciliates were studied. The average data of biomass of ciliates and their functional activity in Kiev RMS fish pond differ statistically reliable ? they are higher. As well mean seasonal values are statistically significant higher in the summer time.
