An assessment of the trophic status of Lake Mogan, which is an important recreation area for the city of Ankara, was carried out utilizing data collected between December 2001 and January 2003. The data include water quality parameters, dominant plankton and zoobenthos taxa. The trophic status of Lake Mogan is considered to be mesotrophic/ eutrophic. This conclusion is consistent with the results of earlier studies.
