Sinwulyu River contains abundant aquatic resources; the protected fish species include Scapheathes alticorpus, Hemimyzon taitungensis, and Spinibarbus hollandi. The mainstream of Sinwulyu River, Dalung River and Wulakusan River, has been preserved in the most natural form. The clear pool and riffle, various giant rocks, pebbles, gravel, and silt, and ample algae and aquatic insect create the best habitat for freshwater fish in Taiwan.
