The Crustacean zooplankton are excellent indicators of environmental perturbation, especially if enough of their biology is known to explain why certain species increase with nutrient enrichment of lakes. The distribution of zooplankton in Lake Ontario suggested that eutrophic indicators were found in the vicinity of major urban centers. Furthermore, mathematical indices, including diversity, the community competition coefficient, and carrying capacity, separated urban inshore from rural inshore waters, further evidence of perturbation. Biomass estimates made with new acoustical techniques indicated that most of the zooplankton biomass was in deep waters, thus the eutrophication of Ontario's waters, both nearshore and in the vicinity of cities, is still localized in nature. Mathematical techniques have been developed to model such perturbations.
