Dynamics of the development of the invasive crustacean Stenocypris sp. (Ostracoda) was studied in different sections of the cooling pond of the Tyumen Thermal Power Station-1 − in the place of heated water release with the maximal temperature of water and in the zone with moderate heating. It has been found that the type of substrate did not influence the development of Ostracoda. The study of the dynamics of Stenocypris sp. development in periphyton in summer and autumn 2016 has shown that the increased water temperature (to 39.4°C) favored its development, which was accompanied by the increase in the quantitative indices of this species. It has been found that current velocity did not limit the development of this species of Ostracoda.
