Abstract: This present study was conducted in order to assess the abundance, diversity and stomach content of freshwater fishes caught in Pampanga River along the municipality of Cabiao, Nueva Ecija, Philippines. A total of six fish species were collected namely rohu carp (Labeo rohita), silver carp (Hypoththalmichthys molitrix), common carp (Cyprinus carpio), striped snakehead (Channa strita), Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) and crucian carp (Carassius carassius). Nile tilapia comprised the highest relative abundance (50.88%; n = 29) from the total fish catches (N = 55). The Cabiao area of the Pampanga River has a fish species diversity index value of 1.42, with evenness of 0.73 and species dominance (Simpson’s index) of 0.67.
