Grass carp

The project team has been able to get some traction from the Governor and relevant authorities on the problems caused by the popular (and meaty) Grass Carp. This large fish is herbivorous and its grazing habits are probably a major reason that the lake has lost most of its macrophytes. Luckily the species cannot breed in the relatively cool Lake Dianchi and so can be maintained only by restocking. (Photo KIZ GEF Team)
