The Ou River has a rich fish fauna. A 2010 survey recorded 60 different fish species, with goldfish, bagrid catfish, and ''Pseudobagrus tenuis'' being the most prolific in range. Compared to a 1972 survey, 20 new species were recorded, including two alien species (Mozambique tilapia and largemouth bass); however, 34 species recorded in 1972 were absent in 2010, and overall fish density was lower. Goby ''Pseudorhinogobius aporus'' is endemic to the Ou River system: it is only known from a brook in the upper Ou River system.
