The peat swamp forest and lakes have been home to 212 species of fish, including 2 globally threatened species (IUCN status), Balantiocheilos melanopterus (ketutung) and Scleropages formosus (Asian arowana), the latter listed in CITES Appendix 1 (Kottelat and Widjanarti 2005; Jeanes and Meijaard 2000); 26 reptiles, including 11 species globally threatened, 6 species listed in CITES Appendix II, 7 species nationally protected, and 1 species endemic to Borneo (Jeanes and Meijaard 2000); 282 birds, including 31 confirmed globally threatened, 36 CITES-listed species, 72 nationally protected bird species, and 5 confirmed Borneo endemics (Jeanes and Meijaard (2000).
The DSNP fish fauna includes two highly popular aquarium fish: the rare and valuable red variety of the endangered Asian Arowana Scleropages formosus or siluk (listed on Appendix I of CITES), and the Clown Loach Botia macracanthus or ulanguli.
One new cause, not mentioned by previous observers, was that fires were ignited to facilitate the capture of the red-phase Arowana fish (Scleropages formosus), a valuable, and now rare, ornamental fish.
Finally, something specifically worth mentioning is that DSNP represents the only protected site, within the known range of the valuable and rare "red-phase" Arowana (Scleropages formosus), a species which is CITES I listed, IUCN threat listed, and nationally protected.
This includes the Arowana (Scleropages formosus), a key conservation species, which now appears to be largely restricted to remote swamp forest areas due to high fishing pressure elsewhere in the lake basin.
