Description

There are 107 species and subspecies of fish in the country's lakes and rivers, among which many are endemic or subendemic. In Lake Issyk-Kul alone, there are eleven endemic fish species. The following species, listed in Kyrgyz Republic Red Data Book, are represented on KEP stamps:

- Issyk-Kul Marinka (Schizothorax issykkuli);
- Eastern Ostroluchka (Capoetobrama kuschakewitschi);
- Turkestan Catfish (Glyptosternon reticulatum);
