    Plankton is vast and diverse group of organism incapable of free swimming. They drift in the mercy of water current. Plankton is described as the smallest group of plants and animals in the aquatic ecosystem. The term „plankton‟ was coined by the Germen founder of Quantitative Plankton and Fishery Research, Victor Henson in 1887. It is derived from a Greek word „Plano‟ meaning „to wander‟ and it has the same etymological root as „planet‟. They are seen in both marine and freshwater ecosystems. Planktons are broadly classified into two major groups „Phytoplankton and Zooplankton‟. Phytoplanktons are microscopic plant community in the aquatic environment. They synthesize organic carbon from inorganic material by the process of photosynthesis. They are considered as the primary producers in the aquatic ecosystem.
