The objective of the present study was to examine the diversity and distribution of fishes in the Krueng Geumpang River.The survey was conducted from 1 st to 22 nd August 2015 with six sampling locations. Fish samples were caught using gillnets and fish traps. Data analyses performed in this study were the frequency of incidence (FOI), diveristy index (H'), and dominance index (C). A total of 88 individual fishes belong to 12 species and six familia. Tor soro is the dominant species in this

The Shannon-Wienner diversity index ranged from 0.00 to 2.05. The low value of the diversity index (H') can be caused by factors such as river morphology, poisoning, mining, and overfishing.
