The present study was aimed to assess the effect of fish feeding on the diversity and structure of aquatic macroinvertebrates in fishponds of Blondey in Southern Côte d’Ivoire. It was conducted in three fish ponds: a Pond without Fish (PWF), a Pond Stocking with Fish without artificial Feed (PSFWF) and a Pond Stocking with Fishs that receive artificial Feed (PSFF). In each pond, aquatic macroinvertebrates samplings were undertaken monthly with artificial substrate from November 2015 to October 2016. A total of 45 taxa belonging to three classes, seven orders and 24 families were collected. Taxa richness is higher in PWF and PSFF and lower in PSFWF. The abundance of Ephemeroptera and Trichoptera decreased respectively from PWF (144 and 421) to PSFF (8 and 18). However, the abundance of Diptera (Chironmidae) was increased (347 to 2583 specimens) in these same fishponds.
