The present paper was developed on the basis of bibliography in connection with this subject and personal field research conducted during 2016 and 2017. The research objectives aimed at: identifying the structure of the benthic biocenoses in the monitoring points; establishing saprobity index for each species identified and including the monitoring sections into the appropriate saprobity class; determining the ecological quality of Doamnei River in the monitoring points according to the methodology established by the Framework Directive 2000/60 / EC. Following the zoobenthic fauna analysis and the samples taken from the three stations along Doamnei River we have identified 48 species from 7 genera belonging to 16 families from 6 orders.
