Fakfak and Kumawa Mountains are located in Bomberay Peninsula, Papua, a poorly known ichthyological record and was recommended by Conservation International for field inventory. This research was conducted from 6-15 February 2021 to document freshwater fish diversity in northern and eastern Fakfak toward Bomberay District. The fish was collected from creeks, streams, and rivers. The fish collection was done once in each location, mainly using a seine net, while a gill net was used in a few sites along Ubadari River. It was done for four hours, netting in one to three locations each day. Fish abundance was described based on common (C), occasionally (O), dan rare (R) scales. Freshwater fish data were descriptively identified. Twenty-two native New Guinean species belonging to 19 genera and 14 families were collected during the survey. There was no specific family dominant in the fish community. All fish recorded have widespread distribution, yet only one species has restricted distribution in the Vogelkop and Bomberay Peninsulas. One rainbowfish species was observed but not properly identified. This results as initial data of the fish community of Bomberay Peninsula, especially of Fakfak. Further research is needed to reveal the fish community from another part of the peninsula.
