To clarify the structures and functions of ecosystem and to establish the methods for the conservation of natural resources in the Mt. Boryeon, the author surveyed freshwater fish fauna at 6 stations from July 24 to 27, 2006. The collected species during the surveyed period were 15 species belonging to 7 families. Korean endemic species were 8 : Coreoleuciscus splendidus, Squalidus gracilis majimae, Microphysogobio yaluensis, Iksookimia koreensis, Pseudobagrus koreanus, Silurus microdorsalis, Liobagrus andersoni and Odontobutis interrupta, which showed a ratio of 53.3% in all collected species. According to relative abundance in the studies area, Zacco platypus (38.0%), R. oxycephalus (33.0%) and C. splendidus (6.1%) dominated. Hemibarbus longirostris, M. yaluensis, Orthrias nudus, Misgurnus anguillicaudatus, P. koreanus and L. andersoni were rare in the surveyed areas, which occupied less than 2% in relative abundance. Dominant species was R. oxycephalus (St. 1, 2, 4) and Z. platypus (St. 3, 5, 6). According to the diversity, evenness and richness indices, St. 5 and 6 may more stable in fish community than others. S. microdorsalis could be a representative species in Mt. Boyeon.
