Taihu Lake, China
Lake Taihu, Chekiang Province, China. This shallow lake is very productive due to high nutrient loading. The dock and fish pen in the foreground are part of the Taihu Laboratory for Lake Ecosystem Research, a part of the Nanjing Institute of Geography and Limnology. Fish fences in the background guide fish to traps. Photo, September 2000.
