...18 fish species and 22 waterfowl and bird species found in Surabaya River ecosystem. The river also has big potency to be developed as ecotourism site for various activities such as water sport, fishing, bird watching and camping ground.

The waste disposal activity has polluted the river and threats the river function and river diversity.
