The species diversity and numbers of nematodes in particular zones of three lakes with different trophy were analysed. In an oligotrophic lake (Char) the highest number of profundal nematodes and high species diversity in both profundal and littoral zones were found, in the contrary to data for b-mesotrophic (Żarnowieckie) and eutrophic ( Mikołajskie) lakes.
