Mohd Ikhwanuddin, Mat Esa and Amal, Mohammad Noor Azmai and Aziz, Azizul and Sepet, Johari and Talib, Abdullah and Ismail, Muhammad Faiz and Jamil, Nor Rohaizah (2017) Inventory of fishes in the upper Pelus River (Perak river basin, Perak, Malaysia). Check List, 13 (4). 315 - 325. ISSN 1809-127X


The upper Pelus River is located in the remote area of the Kuala Kangsar district, Perak, Malaysia. Recently, the forest along the upper portion of the Pelus River has come under threat due to extensive lumbering and land clearing for plantations. Sampling at 3 localities in the upper Pelus River at 457, 156 and 89 m above mean sea level yielded 521 specimens representing 4 orders, 11 families, 23 genera and 26 species. The most abundant species was Neolissochilus hexagonolepis, followed by Homalopteroides tweediei and Glyptothorax major. The fish community structure indices was observed to increase from the upper to lower portion of the river, which might reflect differences in water velocity.
