Qinghai Naked Carp

Last updated by fabiowzgogo at 2014/5/27

The naked carp is the specialty of Qinghai Lake. The naked carp is commonly called “Huang Fish” and it got the name just because it is one fish living in cold water without scales. Qinghai Lake used to be an out-flooding lake. As time flied by, the earth movement caused the formation of Riyue Mountain, Yeniu Mountain and the mountains around Qinghai Lake. The surrounding mountainous areas expanded day by day and Qinghai Lake eventually became an inland lake. In order to adapt the environment on the plateau, Huang Fish striped down the scales and became non-scale fish. They inhabit and multiply in Qinghai Lake and become the staple fish of Qinghai Lake. Huang Fish looks like the carp in Yellow River. There is no scale on its body and there are black spots on its back. The meat of Huang Fish is tender and soft. It is not only delicious, but also full of nutrition. The fish is an important and rare aquatic animal of China.
