Fun of Fishing

Fun of Fishing Leaflet.

There are 17 reservoirs and 9 irrigation reservoirs in Hong Kong, which are open to the public for fishing off the breeding season every year. In fact, these storage reservoirs, like natural waters, contain a variety of organic living organisms such as algae, protozoa and fish which can maintain an ecological balance and purify the environment naturally. Limnological, hydrological, biological and gillnet surveys are regularly conducted in the reservoirs by Water Supplies Department to ensure a favourable ecological balance and good water quality.

Having a peaceful and scenic environment with various types of fish, the reservoirs are very popular fishing spots.
