About 50 species have commercial value, of which 7 species are endemic species in the region and 6 species are endangered throughout China. In this paper, the process and the position of the ichthyofauna in the zoogeographic division were analyses. Considering the differences between east and west slopes of Wulin Mountains range as remarkable, a zoogeographical boundary line suggested was lied on the Wulin Mountains. The line divided the part of South east Asia Subregion into two areas. Namely, Dongting Lake plain is belonged to the East China, Qinjiang river and Wujiang river are situated in the West China.
