Macro Invertebrate

Any arthropod (e.g., Order Diptera, Coleoptrea, Trichoptera, Ephemeroptera, Plecoptera) or Gastropod (snail) species living within the confines of the river. These communities of animals form complex food webs, and typically occupy the second and third trophic levels for most of the world’s cold running water ecosystems.
