Stefano, 
 
Why do you need to know if the fish genus is valid??
It only needs to be an available name (not necessarily valid), in order for the isopod name to be an invalid junior homonym ...
There is no reason to think that the fossil fish name is unavailable, but hard to be 100% sure as the original memoir is in Chinese and not available online (http://species.wikimedia.org/wiki/Sinoniscus_%28Liu_%26_Wang%29)
A Google search for the species name does turn up some hits in other literature, but mostly in Chinese ...
 
Stephen

Sinoniscus Liu & Wang, 1978 is a fossil fish, Sinoniscus Schultz, 
1995 is an isopod. I just need to know if the former is valid.
