A wealth of literature has been published in the studies of Chinese fresh-water fish chromisomes within recent years. In this paper, we review the inter- and intraspeeific genetic diversities found in Chinese/resh-water fishes, and explore the characteristics and mechanisms that underline these diversities and variations. We also propose the hypothesis how the genetic diversities had evolved in the fresh-water fishes.
