This study examined the substrate preferences of wild adult Schizothorax lantsangensis using both field investigation and laboratory experiments. The substrate preference of S. lantsangensis was determined in the laboratory, using a single factor test, by comparing the residence times of fish in each of six substrates during different time periods. This study provides a reference for the creation of artificial substrate in habitat restoration in the Lancang River.
