Traditional fishing boats

Traditional fishing boats on Lake Dianchi, on the south of Kunming, the capital of Yunnan Province in south China. This lake is as hot a freshwater biodiversity hotspot as one could find outside of the Rift Valley lakes in Africa. While its biodiversity is remarkable, the lake suffered from industrial, domestic and agricultural pollution, as well as from the tidying up of the shoreline during the Mao Tse-dung era.
