1998). Therefore, navigation in the Yangtze River would not only affect the fish diversity and other aquatic animals directly (Dong et al. 2012) but also pollute the water where the ship went and affect fish diversity indirectly (Pu 2010). Conservation Strategies The current conservation policies for freshwater fish biodiversity in China mainly focus on the endangered fishes and economic fishes, while ordinary fish are not of great consideration. Since the Yangtze River basin is undergoing a very rapid deterioration as a consequence of human-induced changes, conservation strategies must be implemented and expanded.

The effective realization of nature reserve functions can be pushed forward only through their tracing, monitoring and appraisal. Strengthening Administration of Yangtze Fishery The Yangtze fishery production is very unfavorable to the development of fishery production. Fishing gears and methods that damage juvenile fish stocks should be banned, mesh sizes for various kinds of nets strictly restricted, and the allowable catching sizes of various fish species set so that the fish resources can be 26 L.

Therefore, in order to preserve the rare and endemic fish in the upper Yangtze River, reserve networks, rather than a single national nature reserve, should be established. At present, there are three fish reserves, of which one is for the protection of rare and unique species in the upper reach at the national level and two are for the protection of Chinese sturgeon at the provincial level. The National Nature Reserve for rare and peculiar fish species in the upper Yangtze River is the only national protected zone across many provinces in China.
