The number of chromosome and karyotype of Garra rufa (Heckel, 1843) was determined by the conventional preparation and Gimsa staining technique, using gill epithelia and kidney cells. In this investigation, 5 specimens of Garra rufa were used which collected from Rodbal River, Firouzabad, Fars Province. Based on 30 chromosome spreads counts, the chromosome number was found to be 2n=50 with arm number NF=84. By using the ratio of long arm to short arm, the karyotype formula of 10 metacentric, 24 sub-metacentric and 16 sub-telocentric (10M +24SM +16St) was obtained.
