In the 1970s there was little control over fishery activities, leading to over-exploitation of the lake resources. Invasive non-native species (grass carps, gobies, and other small fishes), as well as loss of spawning grounds have also impacted the species.
Poropuntius chonglingchungi is a species of ray-finned fish in the genus Poropuntius. The species is only known from Fuxian Lake in Yunnan; it enters streams for spawning. It has been impacted by introduced species, the loss of spawning habitat, and over-fishing. It has not been recorded since the 1980s; IUCN considers it as Critically Endangered and possibly extinct.
