Investigation and preliminary laboratory study on substrate preference of Schizothorax lantsangensis

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.
