Garing fish (Genus Tor) have high economic value. This fish include as the red list of threatened extinction. Thus, their conservations have to keep safe by using conservation and domestication effort. Furthermore, we need deep understanding about the criteria of physical habitat parameter (water depth, water velocity, the type of base substrate and the type of cover). The expectation of this research result is able to give the better picture of physic habitat parameter to every life stage of Garing fish. Hence, the researchers have done a field research toward the fish habitat. The data is analyzed by using PHAB-SIMs. The result of analysis shows, the appropriate water depth for Garing fish in the life stage of juvenile less than 0.50 m, in the life stage of subadult greater than 0.25 m and in the life stage of adult greater than 0.50 m, the appropriate water velocity for juvenile stage less than 0.76 m/s, subadult stage 0.26-1.00 m/s and adult stage greater than 0.50 m/s, the appropriate types of base subtract for juvenile stage are sand, pebble and small cobble, for subadult and adult stage are small cobble and big stone in flow, while the appropriate cover types for juvenile, subadult and adult stage are relatively resemble which are no cover, the tree shadow and big stone in flow.
