There is only 1 sanctuary in the state of Selangor, namely the Chiling River Fish Sanctuary, Kuala Kubu Bharu.

The Sungai Chiling Fish Sanctuary (SISC) was established in 2005 and approved by the Selangor State Executive Council (MMKN) in January 2006. It is a protected area of ​​Mahseer (Tor Tambroides) and Copper Mahseer (Neolissochilus Soroides) established by the Department of Fisheries Selangor in 2005 and approved by the Selangor State Executive Council in 2006. The SISC is located in the Hulu Selangor Permanent Forest Reserve and managed by the Department of Fisheries Selangor.

The main goal of the establishment of SISC is to conserve and preserve Mahseer species from the threat of extinction. Various environmental awareness and appreciation programs have been implemented at SISC attended by various government agencies, the private sector, NGOs and school students. SISC also receives donations for maintenance and upgrading of public facilities from the private sector, Hulu Selangor District Council and Selangor State MOTAC Office. With the entry of more than 40 thousand people a year, SISC has now been listed as one of the main attractions in the state of Selangor.
