Tianliao Fish Ponds (Tianliao District)

Tianliao, which is located in northwestern Kaohsiung, is surrounded by mountains on all sides. There is very little land available for farming. What’s more, the barren mudstone landscape of this “moon world” has impeded the development of agriculture. The people of Tianliao have overcome the limitations of this environment by pursuing fish farming. Wresting a living from these badlands, the residents of Tianliao have demonstrated the Taiwanese spirit with their tenacity and vigor.
