In the present study, we reported the results of the monitoring and investigations of the ichthyofauna of the Beshar River, one of the tributaries of the Tigris−Euphrates basin in Kohkiluyeh and Boyer-Ahmad Province, southwest of Iran. The results showed that during a period from 2010 to 2011, a total of 13 fish species belonging to 4 families and 3 orders were recorded in the Beshar River. The results indicated that among families of ichthyofauna identified the largest family was Cyprinidae with 9 species and 69.23 percent abundance and the dominated species was the Garra rufa with 30.28 percent abundance. The Beshar River ichthyofauna is a combination of fauna and includes 6.5, 14.3 and 17.7 % of species, family and order of Iran freshwater fish fauna respectively.
