Among them, Jiayu fish (termed as "Ptychidio jordani Myers") is known as the top 10. Legend has it that this kind of fish was discovered by an imperial cook during the inspection tour of Emperor Jiaqing (1760-1820) in Sanshui. Since nobody knew its name, the emperor gave the name of Jiayu. From then on, Jiayu fish was known to everyone and it would be served on banquet by the rich.

Except for all kinds of fish, the river prawn is also an attraction to visitors. Living in the crack of stones in rushing rivers, these prawns have to hold themselves in position by a clamp so that the meatt is chewy.
